There is still no decision in a case against the city in the 2015 death of Cecile Paquette. (File)

There is still no decision in a case against the city in the 2015 death of Cecile Paquette.

The trial wrapped up on April 5, with a decision from judge Karen Lische scheduled for June 13, but that date has now been moved to Aug. 31.

The city is being charged with with not providing signallers for the grader operator, not erecting a 1.8-metre "sturdy fence" to separate the public from the construction site, and not implementing a traffic protection plan, as well as not ensuring that its contractor, Interpaving, was following those three sections of Ontario's Occupational Health and Safety Act.

Interpaving Limited was fined $195,000 March 28 under the Occupational Health and Safety Act after the company after was found guilty of failing to provide a signaller at a 2015 construction project that resulted in the death of Cecile Paquette when she was struck by a road grader.
