Power line plan OK

New Westminster city council approved Monday the school district’s application to waive the requirement for underground on-street power lines when it builds the proposed St. Mary’s elementary. City engineering staff had recommended the request be denied to remain consistent with what all new development is required to do. However, the Ministry of Education indicated it would not pay the $300,000 needed to do the job because it wasn’t an educational expense.
