SPRINGHILL; During May's meeting of town council, councilors unanimously passed a motion brought forward by councilor Kathy Fisher.
The motion states the Town of Springhill will request, "At least three quotes detailing the scope of the work required and the cost associated with re-opening the old public works building."
"I know we are looking at another area but I think it's important to find out what it would cost and what we would have to do in order to be able to look at the feasibility of the old building," Fisher said.
The 'other area' being looked at is on the land between the bowling alley and the community centre.
"I have always been against a new building being built between the bowling alley and the community centre," Fisher said. "I never did feel it would be an appropriate place for it."
The councilors concluded that no harm could it do to get three quotes.
"I think if there is no cost to us and people are going to come in and give an assessment while we are waiting for the other place we have nothing to lose," councilor Clarence Falconer said. "We've been waiting a long time to get a figure in particular to that land and building and we haven't heard anything."
Fisher said council has not been in on the process as much as they should have been and are therefore not very well informed.
"We have to go back and look at the situation we had at the old building," Fisher added. "We have to keep that option open."
The motion to get three quotes towards rebuilding the old public works building was carried unanimously by all councilors.
