Almost no debate took place at Monday’s executive committee meeting before the executive voted in favour of referring the Mosaic Place accessibility report to the special needs advisory board for a response.

The parks and recreation department presented the report to the executive committee. in response to recommendations the municipal special needs advisory committee made after a recent tour of the downtown facility. Administration recommended to receive and file the report.

Following administration’s presentation, Coun. Heather Eby brought forward a motion to accept the recommendation to receive and file.

Coun. Brian Swanson brought forward the motion to refer the report to the special needs advisory board. Swanson’s motion was passed after Eby withdrew her motion following a brief discussion.

“I think the intention here is ... to get some response back from the committee having received the information that was provided by administration in response to the original report,” said Mayor Glenn Hagel.

    Where was the special needs advisory board when the behemouth was built downtown?Don't you think it's a little late now after the fact,let alone more costly to install an escalator now.But with the idiotic behavior of the fab5 and our current 4 on council,this escalator project does have to move ahead.There should have been a risk management study done,because just sit back and wait until you see what happens next.And to think,one of the fab 5 is in a position to determine one's future."Very Scarey"
