Wait­ing for fund­ing

Har­ris adds, how­ever, if the fire build­ing has a pos­si­bil­ity of be­ing named a re­gional fa­cil­ity, serv­ing other ar­eas, it could be a 70-30 cost share.

“There’s no talks of that right now, so our best-case sce­nario is 60-30 right now,” he said.

Har­ris says hav­ing this work done ahead of time is two-fold — the de­tailed de­sign shows what the pre-ten­der costs will be and then this ac­cu­rate num­ber will be able to be more closely tied to a sum of money that could be al­lot­ted for fund­ing. Clarenville Mayor Frazer Rus­sell says the work was awarded by a com­mit­tee con­sist­ing of in­di­vid­u­als from Mu­nic­i­pal Af­fairs and the town af­ter eval­u­at­ing three dif­fer­ent pro­pos­als.

Now, he says he hopes the ac­tual fund­ing an­nounce­ment from the gov­ern­ment will come in 2019.

Har­ris says Mu­nic­i­pal Af­fairs will need to ap­prove the prime con­sul­tant agree­ment for them to con­tinue on with the project.
