Calgary Eyeopener West LRT May 17, 2012 | 7:22How important is public art to public transit?
City Council will have to debate that question, given the news it heard yesterday.
The West LRT Line is running over budget by roughly 35 million dollars and it turns out city administrators failed to set aside the required 1% for public art.
As a result, Council has agreed to temporarily withold any spending on art for the project.
Brian Pincott is a city councillor for Calgary's Ward 11.
