$350,000 budgeted to remove park soil contaminents
from Timmins Press
The cost of cleaning up the Hollinger Park following the discovery of heavy metal contaminants there last year is expected to cost the city a significant amount of money — perhaps as much as $350,000. That was revealed recently as city council was in the process of reviewing various city budgets for day-to-day operations and also for capital spending. Mark Jensen, the city's director of community and development services, advised council that a mitigation plan is in the works to replace the topsoil at Hollinger Park with new clean soil.
