Pool money

The Glengarry News - - News - BY STEVEN WAR­BUR­TON News Staff

North Glengarry coun­cil has ap­proved a one-time lump sum pay­ment of $100,000 for Hôpi­tal Glengarry Memo­rial Hos­pi­tal so it can re­place the Dec­tron de­hu­mid­i­fier in the swim­ming pool.

In Fe­bru­ary, the hos­pi­tal’s CEO, Linda Mor­row, told coun­cil that the 17-year-old unit is at the end of its life cy­cle. A new one would be needed by the sum­mer or the hu­mid­ity lev­els in the pool would be too high to al­low for any sort of com­fort­able ac­tiv­ity. The hos­pi­tal re­ceives $20,000 from the town­ship ev­ery year to sup­port the pool’s op­er­a­tions. The $100,000 is an ad­vance of these pay­ments over the next five years. “The re­main­ing $80,000 would be ad­vanced in lieu of an­nual pay­ments of $20,000 for the years 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022,” says a staff re­port.
