The projected cost to repair the projector for the city’s council chambers is a far cry from what was budgeted.

The city recently learned the cost to repair the projector, used at council and committee meetings to display agendas and other materials, should come in at about $880. This means the city will not have to follow through on a contingency plan of purchasing a new projector, for which council supported a budget amendment allowing staff to spend up to $10,000. The projector had broken down about a month ago and had to be sent to the manufacturer in Ontario for repairs.
