YEAR IN REVIEW April: P3 water proposal rejected by council

Mission rejected collaborating with Abbotsford on the P3 Stave Lake water proposal, which was later rejected in a Nov. 19 referendum.

  • Dec. 28, 2011 2:00 p.m.

The Abbotsford-Mission Water and Sewer Commission (AMWSC) did not proceed with a private-public partnership option to develop a new water supply source for the two communities. In a close four-part vote, Mission council rejected a plan in early April to apply for a grant from Public Private Partnerships Canada which could have provided up to 25 per cent of the cost for the $300-million Stave Lake water source project.

Presentations were made to both councils April 4 at their respective meetings by AMWSC on the project and Deloitte and Touche on the business case for P3, and each were expected to vote on the recommendations. Abbotsford council deferred its decision for two weeks, but ultimately voted to go ahead.
