Nelson city hall washes windows despite water restrictions

For anyone wondering why city hall’s windows were washed despite water restrictions, it turns out it was done by an outside contractor.

For anyone wondering why city hall was washing its windows recently despite water restrictions, it turns out it was done by an outside contractor who does windows for provincial government buildings.

“Due to 310 Ward formerly being a provincial building, the [contractor] still does building maintenance,” public works director Colin Innes told the Star.

“In discussing this issue with them they have indicated that the window washing was organized for all of the buildings they maintain, so our restrictions were not recognized in the setup of the window washing.”

Innes said the company is now aware, and will comply with any restrictions in place in Nelson.
