Council to consider hotel approval

City council will consider Monday evening whether to grant conditional approval to Nova Builders for its planned 30-room hotel at the base of Twin Pine Hill along Franklin Avenue.

Councillors already have had a chance to review the plans for the project during a municipal services committee in May, which was first pitched by Nova owner Mike Mrdjenovich as a 19-room "boutique" hotel. The hotel would be located beside the Arnica Inn.

Because the area is zoned Old Town Mixed Use, the plan goes to council for review and approval.

Council to debate water source

The city's municipal services committee is expected to mull a switch in the drinking water supply during a noon hour public meeting Monday at city hall.

The discussion was requested by Coun. Niels Konge who is seeking information about whether the water from Yellowknife Bay could be used instead of the Yellowknife River. An eight-km pipeline under Great Slave Lake carries the city water supply currently but is scheduled to be replaced in 2020 at an estimated cost of $20 million.

Opponents of the switch have raised concerns of arsenic contamination in the bay.
