Burke said the project will once again be a 50/50 ini­tia­tive with the Sackville Ro­tary, with the club agree­ing to con­trib­ute half of the costs for the struc­ture, which is es­ti­mated to be in the $3,000 range.

“The Ro­tary Club was pleased to part­ner with the town of Sackville on the ren­o­va­tions to the booster pump fa­cil­ity,” said Josh Cormier, pres­i­dent of the Sackville Ro­tary. “These ren­o­va­tions will keep this im­por­tant com­mu­nity as­set avail­able for gen­er­a­tions to come.”

The ex­ist­ing plaque in the struc­ture that marks the Booster Pump site, dat­ing back to 1919, will be re­in­stalled once the new build­ing is com­pleted.
