Town hall work, bus shelter planned for Sidney

Town hall to get fresh paint, sign, plus conduct citizen satisfaction survey

A new town hall sign and bus shelter could be in the works for Sidney.

Town staff found $143,000 in the budget from unspent wages. It comes from delays in hiring a deputy fire chief and GIS co-ordinator.

The money will go toward work the town put off for budgetary reasons. It includes exterior paint, renos, furniture and a new sign for town hall, a bus shelter and a citizen satisfaction survey.

Coun. Marilyn Loveless said she doesn’t support the town hall renos, but voted in favour of the money reallocation anyway.

“I believe fundamentally that we need a new town hall. I’d prefer to be tucking this [money] away.”
