Municipal Complex Milestones
Municipality of the County of Kings
KINGS COUNTY, NS: the current Municipal Building’s lease will expire in October 2017 and the Municipality needs to move forward with the New Municipal Complex.

Work on the Municipal Complex began early in 2009 when the Department of Justice requested that the Municipality participate in a joint space study to redevelop the existing Municipal Complex facility. Since then, many options have been explored and evaluated. Council authorized the Warden and CAO to execute the Agreement of Purchase and Sale to sell the Municipal Complex to the province of Nova Scotia in 2015. The agreement provided a one-year lease with a one-time option for a six month extension. The one-time six-month extension was exercised later in 2015 when Council canceled the first RFP due to the bids being significantly over budget. The lease and its extension will expire in October 2017.

To help the public better understand the process undergone thus far we are providing a list of the Project’s Milestones including estimated future dates. You can find the list of Municipal Complex Milestones attached in the preceding pages.

Warden Brothers – “Our commitment to the residents of this County is to be as transparent as possible. By providing this information we hope that residents will see that Council’s decisions have followed a well thought out process”.
