Readers may recall a story we brought you on April 9, 2018 regarding negotiations with Elections Ontario to rent the Waterloo building one last time before ownership is officially handed over for a drug addiction treatment centre.
The building was officially sold for $3,905,000 to De Novo Trust Fund and the sale is expected to close on June 20, according to Town CAO Denise Corry.
In the meantime, municipal staff has been negotiating one last rental and has come to an agreement with Elections Ontario for a returning office to be located in the building leading up to and following the June 7, 2018 provincial election.
Kari Lambe, Director of Community Services for the Town of Huntsville, confirmed this Monday morning that an agreement has been reached. She said space would be rented to Elections Ontario between May 1 and June 19, 2018. She said the dollar amount agreed on is based on a rate of $25,000 per month. June is being prorated as the rental would not be for a full month, bringing the rental rate to $40,833.33, plus HST, for a total of $46,141.66.
