Plans to remove structures along the flood dyke of Little River were put on hold yet again Monday night.

Homeowners have been building docks and other so-called "obstructions" along the flood dyke for some 30 years.

According to the staff report, 73 of 165 homeowners have these man-made obstructions.

City staff wanted council to approve its bid to remove the encroachments and allow the dyke to perform at full capacity.

But councillor Jo-Anne Gignac says the city has not fully consulted with residents and requested the matter be deferred.

City staff will now speak with these homeowners and report back to council.
