THREE RIVERS, P.E.I. – Public meetings will be held to discuss the fates of four deteriorating small halls across the municipality.
The Lorne Valley hall, the Lower Montague and Brudenell schoolhouses and the Cardigan train station were discussed during a Three Rivers regular council meeting in Montague on Oct. 12.
The request for decision simply stated that surveys be sent out to nearby residents, however Coun. David McGrath amended that public meetings be held as well.
"So, everyone knows where everyone stands."
He suggested one meeting be held per building, but a few other councillors felt that would be excessive for Three Rivers staff to co-ordinate and it may not align with COVID-19 gathering guidelines. It was decided to hold two and to send out a survey to residents afterward.
Time and location have yet to be decided, but meeting at some of the halls in question likely won't be an option, chief administrative officer Jill Walsh said.
"(Because) they don't all meet public safety guidelines."
