TRURO - Town councillors have delayed a decision on moving a gate on Wood Street to enable an architect time to prepare a report.
Chief administrative officer Jim Langille provided a one-minute update at council's February meeting on Monday. He said at January's meeting council discussed the development of the look-off and picnic area across the road from the Secure Treatment Facility atop Wood Street.
A landscape architect has agreed to put together a design for the area but his report will not be available until next month.
In December, a street closure policy was introduced. Mayor Bill Mills told this newspaper the site has a reputation as a pickup spot for gay men, which created controversy and sparked a police investigation against the mayor for an alleged hate crime.
The initial plan called for an existing gate to be moved down the hill to the south of the Secure Treatment Facility.

    Is the Mayor still under investigation for a hate crime? It's been almost two months and do you mean to tell me the police still dont realize that the Mayor did not committ a crime at all, let alone a hate crime? I guess the Mayor can't really sue his own police department but if I were him, i'd look at replacing them with the RCMP. For them to drag this out this long is affecting the Mayor's ability to run the town.
