By Jon Willing, Ottawa Citizen, June 3, 2018 Maybe it’s because 2018 is a municipal election year, or maybe there just happens to be a big pile of money suddenly available for fixing potholes in Ottawa.

The city has found $1 million more to pay for repairs to roads damaged over the winter, thanks to an annual process where projects are closed and leftover money is returned to city hall coffers.

A report on the budget transfers is scheduled for consideration Tuesday by council’s finance and economic development committee.
