City may knock $100,000 off Johnston Street Bridge art

The latest quarterly update on the Johnson Street Bridge project shows work is on schedule and still within its $92.8 million budget, but City of Victoria staff is asking council to shave $100,000 off public art spending.

In March 2012, council approved $350,000 to be spent on a public art display at the east approach of the new bridge. Staff is recommending council reduce that amount to $250,000.

At a committee meeting last Thursday, council asked for more information on public realm elements from the director of engineering. The decision will now be postponed to December or January.
