NIPAWIN — The Town of Nipawin will be buying the Nipawin and District Chamber of Commerce office building for $85,000 plus a $5,000 signing bonus.
The decision was made at a special council meeting held on June 14.
The office has doubled as a visitor information centre, a service the chamber has provided since the late 1980s. The town took over the administration of visitor information services from the chamber earlier this year.
In a media release, the town said that efforts are now underway to complete the sale and to determine a possession date.
The town said in the long term, it will re-establish visitor information service delivery at the site. Other uses for the building are to be determined.
“The town council appreciates the services that have been – and I know will continue to be – provided by the Nipawin and District Chamber of Commerce,” said Rennie Harper, Nipawin’s mayor, in the release.
“We support and look forward to the increased emphasis the chamber intends to undertake toward advocacy of business interests within Nipawin and throughout our geographic area.
“I look forward to our continued partnership and working together.”
