Some City Councillors are concerned over the size of the contingency fund for repairs slated for the Whalen Building. Administration says it's because the building is 98 years old and they're not sure what they could find when they start to rehabilitate. Council approved a 719 thousand dollar renovation contract with Roof Tile Management. 3 million dollars will be spent on the building in the next two years.
A 14 year boy is behind bars this morning after being found in a stolen car. Police found the car at Hillcrest Park just before 3 o'clock, when they approached it the driver took off and collided with a cruiser. The vehicle was then driven to Marlborough Street where it was abandoned and the occupants fled. Officers arrested the driver but the others escaped.
