Staff recommend community working group solution

Picton Gazette

A motion recommending council selects the submission from the Save Picton Town Hall Community Working Group also known as ‘ A Hall for All’ as the preferred proposal received in response to the Municipality’s Request for Expressions of Interest will be brought forth at the Committee of the Whole meeting at Shire Hall on Thursday.

Late last summer, Council had chosen to list the former Town of Picton fire hall and municipally owned meeting space be listed for potential sale through a request for proposal process while also inviting alternative proposals for use for the property and allowed six months from the issuance of the RFP for submissions to be brought forward.

In total, a pair of proposals were received through the process and staff is recommending that Council select the proposal submitted by the Save Picton Town Hall Working Group (A Hall for All) as the preferred submission for the use of the property at 2 Ross Street.

According to a report accompanying staff’s recommended motion, the motion calls for staff to be directed to work with the Save Picton Town Hall Working Group on the establishment of a Board of Management to oversee the operations of the property as per the proposal and subject to the conditions outlined in the recommendations of the report.
