Council Notes - October 11th, 2017 Special Meeting of Council
Offer to Purchase the Edson Recreation Complex. A Public Hearing was held prior to the vote on the negotiated sales agreement for the purchase of the Edson and District Recreation Complex. During the public hearing, a letter was submitted from the potential buyer, outlining his intents to run the facility as a golf/curling club and events centre, along with some background information about his current business ventures. There were numerous submissions from the public in attendance ranging from concerns over the selling price, the timing of the deal, and current condition of the building. Council was also informed of two other letters of intent regarding potential offers from the Golf Club and another interested party. Following the public hearing, Council voted unanimously against the motion to accept the deal, and any future decisions on the matter will be brought forward following the October 16th election.
