Municipal staff is recommending that Sabre Transport be awarded the contract to close the Whistler landfill at a cost of $4.5 million.
The recommendation is one of two regarding solid waste that council will deal with at tonight’s meeting, which starts at 6:30 p.m.
The second recommendation is that council support an application for Crown land to build a new waste transfer station at the entrance to the Callaghan Valley.
Also on the council agenda tonight is a request to provide a television and production crew full access to Meadow Park Sports Centre for five days in November at no cost. Carr Hughes Productions and USA Curling want to produce a show for NBC television, called the US Curling Team Celebrity Challenge.
The dates for the made-for-TV production are Tuesday, Nov. 14 to Saturday, Nov. 18. All programs at the Meadow Park Sports Centre impacted by the production would be cancelled or re-scheduled.
The show would be broadcast in the U.S.A. on Sunday, Nov. 26, which is the U.S. Thanksgiving weekend.
A public hearing on the Rainbow land housing project is also scheduled for tonight, starting at 7 p.m. at MY Millennium Place.
