City okays dump expansion


The City of Iqaluit’s engineering department will expand the city’s landfill site to the north-east, extending its life until 2011, at a cost of about $150,000.

Iqaluit city councillors voted in favour of the proposal this past Tuesday after Brad Sokach, the city’s director of engineering, told council’s engineering and planning committee that federal and territorial officials are not opposed to the idea.

Work on the creation of related berms and drainage systems will likely start this summer, Sokach said.
