Isolated power outage forces Vancouver city hall to close


Vancouver city hall is closed to the public today because of a power outage.

BC Hydro was on scene Tuesday afternoon at 453 West 12th Ave. to investigate the cause of the outage, which has not impacted other city buildings in the area.

“This means there is no access to revenue services today, however customers can still access building permits and licences [at 515 West 10th Ave.],” the city said in a news release. “We expect to have power at city hall and be open for regular business hours on Wednesday.”

No council meetings or public hearings were scheduled Tuesday.
