Mayor Nolan Crouse threw another curve ball into future budget debates about the relocation of the AltaLink power line.
Crouse today introduced two motions. The first would see the power line relocation moved to the “unfunded” list in the 2009 budget. That means the city would not put dollars toward the move next year.
The second motion was to return the $300,000 the province gave the city for the estimated $1-million relocation. Crouse also wants to decline the $450,000 that AltaLink pledged for the move.
Council won’t debate either motion until Nov. 26 at the earliest.
