City staff are recommending $500,000 be allocated to repairs and debris removal along the south dike at Gilbert Road.
Funding will come from the city’s drainage improvement reserve fund, staff said in a report. Councillors were unanimously in favour at this week’s city council meeting.
A king tide event on Jan. 13 caused damage to the rip-rap—rocks placed along the shoreline for protection—as well as the accumulation of a large number of logs and other wood debris. The repair work includes reinstatement of rip-rap along a 300 metre stretch as well as debris removal along a 750 metre stretch.
Staff described the work as urgent in their report, and recommended it begin immediately.
