Tiny Township announced dates for three public information sessions in July for their hotly-contested administration centre proposal.

At the recent committee of the whole meeting, public works director Tim Leitch informed the public on the format and locations of the information sessions.

* July 16, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. - virtual meeting 
* July 23, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. - virtual meeting
* July 31, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. - hybrid meeting, held at 130 Balm Beach Road West

Questions regarding the Tiny Township administration centre would be taken online for the two virtual meetings, with Leitch confirming that the in-chambers hybrid meeting would be a public meeting.

Leitch added that further details would be forthcoming by the township’s communications department.

“We’re looking forward to having these sessions and the public input into our public spaces in our new town hall,” said Leitch.

The proposed Tiny Township administration centre came under fire over the past year when protesting residents mounted a petition against the project, stating that the timing wasn’t right to build a new multi-million dollar municipal facility on their tax dollar while the current building remains functional.

The township countered that the 57-year-old building no longer met the needs of the growing population, while citing numerous reasons the current facility doesn’t conform to modern infrastructure requirements for health and safety work practices.

A project overview and related documents are available on the Tiny Township administration centre page of the municipal website.

Archives of council meetings are available to view on the township’s YouTube channel.
