The old fire hall in Kinuso has been sold by Big Lakes County at a bargain price.

At its regular meeting July 14, council approved a recommendation to sell the old fire hall for $1 to the Kinuso and District Volunteer Emergency Response Society.

CAO Jordan Panasiuk stressed a clause has also been added to the agreement that disqualifies the society from capital grant funding from the County to upgrade the building and property.

Since the former fire hall is still used by the Kinuso fire district of Big Lakes County Fire Services, the County offered the building to the society, says Pat Olansky, director of planning and development.

The agreement also includes an option to reacquire the land, she says.

“The option to reacquire the property is recommended [in the agreement] to be consistent with the sale agreement in place with the Enilda and District Society for Recreation and Culture for the former Enilda fire hall,” Olansky says.
