  • Reverend Bryan Beveridge spoke with Council about the Anglican Church.   So far the congregation has spent $60,000 to make the church safe in order to sell the property.  Rev. Beveridge is asking Council to exercise caution in designating the church a historical site as this could damage the congregation and the purchaser of the property. The purchaser is willing to allow for the removal of the church within a reasonable amount of time. 
  • Council accepted the presentation from Reverend Bryan Beveridge regarding the Anglican Church for information.
  • Mr. Bruce Klaiber spoke with Council in regard to the events that have taken place up until this point with trying to acquire the Anglican Church.  Originally the group had looked for a place for the church to be moved.  The location identified did not work out.  It has been indicated to the historical society that once a historical building has been moved from its site it loses its historical status.  Without historical status the group would not be able to get grants for the building.  The group had discussed purchasing the church in order to keep its historical status.
