Plans to remove docks along Little River put on hold
The city has told Little River residents to remove obstructions such as docks from their backyards.
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.
