Beebe de­vel­op­ment un­der bud­get

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Staff Stanstead

While the mayor’s ex­pla­na­tion for the one hun­dred thou­sand dol­lar dif­fer­ence in the bids re­ceived for the in­fras­truc­ture project for the Beebe, town-spon­sored land de­vel­op­ment may sat­isfy him, it is sup­pos­edly the ef­fect of go­ing to bid early, seems that it is rather the local rep­e­ti­tion of a prov­ince wide pat­tern that has seen bids go down by as much as thirty per­cent in some places; This hav­ing noth­ing to do with the Ham­mer squad. One can imag­ine what the arena would have cost today…

So, in the next two weeks, work should start on this project, which will pay for it­self if only one lot is sold a year. Ac­cord­ing to coun­cil, there is al­most not a sin­gle lot avail­able for con­struc­tion in town.

This was the ma­jor news of the evening in a quiet meet­ing that saw no ma­jor ques­tions raised by the au­di­ence.
