North Huron approves purchase of land for Blyth fire hall, shed
By Denny Scott
At last night's North Huron Council meeting, council approved the purchase of two parcels of land at the north end of Queen Street for a new fire hall and public works building.
Bailey explained that council heard the concerns of both the fire department and the public when deciding the North Street location and Gypsy Lane location, the Radford Memorial Baseball Diamond, were unsuitable for the new structure.
Thanks were offered to former Councillor Brock Vodden who presented a petition against the Gypsy Lane location during last night’s meeting, as well as all the members of the public who helped council come to the decision.
The lands were purchased from Philip George Hubbard, Susan E. Hubbard and Catherine McNichol for a grand total of $130,000 split evenly between the two properties.
The sites are identified as Con. 2 Pt. Lot 42 AS RP;22R447 Part 3 and Part 4.
The purchase agreement completes on April 1 of this year.
