Not on time, but under budget

The final costs on the 5th Ave. NW road re-hab project in Slave Lake are in and look pretty good.

Town council heard the report on it at its Feb. 4 meeting.

What council heard was that although the project took quite a bit longer than expected, it ended up $16,353 under budget. There are still a few minor things to be finished off, but they are not expected to change that figure.

The total project cost was $1.568 million.

One reason for the delay in finishing the job – which started in 2018 – was the uncertainly with regard to the plans of the Regional Housing Authority on a new housing complex.
