City council has rubber stamped a number of initiatives at its meeting this morning.
Among them is a 40-million dollar investment over the next 20 years to redevelop Confederation Park.
The plan includes construction of a central commercial village, trails, boardwalks and infrastructure improvements.
The city will hire a person to oversee the land development task force and sell or develop some of Hamilton’s 2-thousand properties to generate revenues for the city.
The individual will earn roughly $90,000 a year, but City Manager Chris Murray says revenues from land sales will cover the cost of the person’s salary.
City staff have also been asked to investigate a way to allow street hockey in Hamilton.
It comes weeks after Toronto councillors agreed to allow kids to play hockey on their roads.
Council has chosen Aquicon Construction Company to build the Bernie Morelli Rec Centre and surrounding projects for 22.1-million dollars.
And councillors also approved a plan to change when landlords have to have the heat on.
They must now provide heat from September 15 to May 15, instead of between August 31 and June 1.
