Lougheed Highway will see a more than $1-million upgrade for more sidewalks and streetlights.
Burnaby council awarded the contract to Jack Cewe Ltd. to construct asphalt curbs, sidewalks and street-lighting improvements in three sections along the highway, including Lake City Way to Underhill Avenue, from Underhill Avenue to Production Way and Gaglardi Way to Bell Avenue.
The cost was included in the city’s 2013 annual financial plan.
Burnaby council approved a $500 donation from the money raised at the Deer Lake Save-On-Foods Fun Run to the Burnaby Task Force on Homelessness.
The five-kilometre run was held on May 25 with 175 participants across all ages at Deer Lake Park.
Every year, a charity is selected by the organizing committee, and the task force provided event day volunteers and collected used running shoes for the homeless.
Money for BBOT
The Burnaby Board of Trade is set to receive its annual $100,000 from the city, to continue operating the City of Burnaby economic development program.
The board receives the funding in quarterly instalments of $25,000.
The finance and civic development committee reviewed the information about the economic development achievements over the year and recommended the grant’s approval.
