DIDSBURY - Town council has referred a proposed Christmas Light Plug-ins project on 20th Avenue back to its performance evaluation committee for review and recommendation.

The move came during the July 11 council meeting. Council approved the project last year.

“Numerous discussions with Fortis have occurred over the past few months to finalize the scope of the work, cost, aesthetics of the final product, and the necessary next steps to produce the desired goal of illuminated Christmas decorations affixed to the streetlights,” Gorner told council.

“Administration has several concerns with respect to aesthetics which require further guidance. Administration is requesting the project be returned to the committee for them to review the concerns and explore potential solutions on behalf of council.”

Deputy mayor Curt Engel chaired the council meeting in the absence of mayor Rhonda Hunter, who was not present due to a family matter.
