King George Park Toboggan Run – Correction to a Newspaper Article

An article on page 11 of the November 8, 2022 edition of the Westmount Independent regarding the toboggan run at King George Park  states that “The installation and maintenance of the formal toboggan run was awarded to Snö Innovation, again the only conforming bidder, asking a maximum of $1,235,000 with taxes for the winter of 2022-2023.”

The City of Westmount wishes to advise the public and its citizens that the amount stated in this article is incorrect. The contract for the installation and maintenance of a sledding area at King George Park was awarded to Snö Innovation at its bid price for a maximum amount of $123,500 (not $1,235,000)

This contract was awarded at the regular council sitting held on October 11, 2022, as indicated on page 5 of the agenda (item 12).
