Clinic meeting postponed

Kincardine council will have to wait a little longer to have its say on the future of the community medical clinic.

Councillors and staff were to meet with Parkin Architects in a special meeting Monday night (Nov. 3). The meeting was postponed last Thursday.

According to the municipality, the postponement was made on the recommendation of the architects.

In September, Parkin Architects presented council with a tentative plan for a clinic addition. The project would have cost $5-million and was significantly bigger than council anticipated. The special meeting was called to lay out the municipality’s expectations for the building and set a cost limit of $2.25-million.

The meeting has not been rescheduled at this time.
