Cobourg Council Supports Second Street Firehall Restoration

In City Hall, Local

Cecilia Nasmith/Today’s Northumberland
Cobourg council has passed a motion to proceed with Phase 2 of the Second Street Firehall restoration project.
The contract has been awarded to Snyder Construction in the amount of $257,849 plus non-refundable HST of $4,538. Additional funding of $95,000 will be made available from the Town of Cobourg Holdings Dividend Reserve to allow for the completion of the project this year.
The property was originally the town’s firehall, and its two big doors facing Second Street were the garage entrance before the Elgin Street firehall was built. Now a small theatre, the building requires roof repairs, window replacements on the first and second storeys, and replacement of woodwork and masonry.
Deputy Mayor John Henderson recalled that the town did extensive work on the building some years ago.
“At the conclusion, this will bring the Second Street Firehall back to where it was many, many years ago,” Henderson said.
“I know it has been 30 years since the full restoration, and it really made the Canadian Standard of Heritage at the national level.
“This has been an on-going continuous process.”
