At the June 26th council meeting, South Dundas council agreed to hire Pinchin Environmental Limited to complete Designated Substance Surveys for two township-owned properties.
Chief administrative officer Stephen McDonald reported that, in preparation for sale, the township intends to demolish buildings at each of the locations: 12960 County Road 2 and 5680 Duncan Street.
He reported that the Occupational Health and Safety Act requires the surveys to be done prior to the demolition, identifying any designated substances present in the demolition area.
The cost of the Duncan Street survey is $2,955 and the cost of the County Road 2 survey is $3,225. Both will be paid for from the Sale of Assets Reserve.
