New sid­ing in the works for SHRU build­ing

Truro Daily News - - COLCHESTER COUNTY - BY HARRY SUL­LI­VAN

A Har­mony con­trac­tor has won the bid to re­place sid­ing on the Spe­cial Haz­ards Re­sponse Unit (SHRU) build­ing on Pic­tou Road in Bi­ble Hill.

A bid of $50,920 (plus HST) sub­mit­ted by Mark Bon­nell’s Con­tract­ing Ser­vices was the low­est of four re­ceived by the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Colch­ester.

e build­ing, which is owned by the mu­nic­i­pal­ity, is used to store spe­cial haz­ard re­sponse equip­ment used by SHRU.

A staff re­port sub­mit­ted to coun­cil said the ex­ist­ing sid­ing has reached the end of its use­ful life and needs to be re­placed. e state of sid­ing has led to some leaks along the east and west walls, the

re­port said.

Coun­cil had pre­vi­ously ap­proved a cap­i­tal bud­get of $35,000 for the sid­ing work along with an­other $20,000 which was to be used to re­place the sid­ing and win­dows in an ad­join­ing build­ing that is used as an Emer­gency Co­or­di­na­tion Cen­tre. Be­cause the cost of the sid­ing came in higher than ex­pected, how­ever, the work on the other build­ing has been post­poned un­til next year.
