Iqaluit contractor fined $6,500
Jens Steenberg pleaded guilty to failing to comply with conditions of a development permit and was fined $6,500 in Iqaluit court May 9.
It was the second fine for Steenberg, who was charged with a similar non-compliance order in November 2001 for a residence in the eastern area of the city. The result was a $500 fine, which Steenberg never paid.
The latest charge was in relation to an illegal suite at house 2686.
The illegal suite was constructed four years ago, and the associated charge was in connection to failing to comply with the original development permit issued back in 1999.
