We are back again with the third installment of “HTV”.  Before we dig in, a big “tip of the hat” to our readers… these posts are very popular and we appreciate your time in reading them.  But back to the business at hand, or the business at the hands of Council to be more precise.  This time we will look at how Council handled the Odyssey Condominium project AKA 10 Windward Drive, a project which is currently in the early sales phase.

Notes: Town Council – May 15, 2017

Agenda: https://grimsby.civicweb.net/filepro/documents…


Public Works Minutes Discussion

Mr. LeRoux presented a few details of the $8M ($5M with “other projects”) Winston Road reconstruction. Costs will be covered through Development Charges (92%), outside contributions ($1.3M) and $600K from the Town. Since DC’s won’t all be received at the time construction starts this June, short term borrowing will need to be put in place with interest payments charged back to DC’s. Potential of 5-8 years to recoup the costs in a “hot” market, and up to 20 years if things slow down (highly probable). Apparently Public Works does not expect too many “extras” and has set aside a small contingency ($100K) for possible overruns.
