Town of Sidney councillors renewed the Sidney Street Market operating agreement with Laurie McDermid of Westcoast Impressions.

The new deal is for a three-year term (2014-2016) and the operator’s compensation will be increased by $5,000 per year.

Profits from the 2013 market, say staff, will be used to partially offset the debt (approx. $20,000) owed the municipality from the previous market operation, the Sidney Business Association.
