Moved By: Kris Nicholls                Seconded By: Tony Pratas

Be it Resolved that the Council of the Municipality of Magnetawan direct the CAO to send a letter to the Anglican Diocese concerning the local Church in Magnetawan being on a Heritage Registration list with the Municipality and seek their permission to have the Anglican Church property placed on such a Heritage Registration list.
Carried
Councillor Tod said he was in contact with Church officials and noted that they were not interested in having their Church in Magnetawan designated or contemplated being designated a historical site and that a letter would most likely be coming from them regarding the issue.
9.2    Stimulus Discussion regarding Options presented
The Mayor felt that, as presented, Option ‘A’ was the only one we could afford. The Mayor noted that with option ‘A’ it would in effect give the Library about 2,600 sq feet of usable space.
Councillor Nicholls said he will go with option ‘A’ for some of the same reasons as outlined by the Mayor.
Councillor Pratas felt that the costs shown by AECOM seemed over inflated at $350-$400 per sq foot is too much. Councillor Pratas felt that a two storey structure would have been a cheaper option to go with rather than a single story structure.
Councillor Tod felt that AECOM’s costs were too high that were estimated. Councillor Tod noted that the level of Health care within the Community without a structure provided for some health care provider to give medical service that health care would keep dwindling.
Councillor Tod also felt that the site for the stand alone site could have been offset somewhat if the South side of the Community centre had not been just costed out and if a site towards the back (east) of the Community Centre was explored it might have come in cheaper.
