Social Services Director Sylvie Milette presented the United Counties of Prescott-Russell council (UCPR) with a report on 37 lots located in Hawkesbury that belong to the UCPR through its social services department. The lots are located along Portelance Street, Gladstone Street and Taché Street.
UCPR council approved a recommendation from Milette to declare all of the lots as surplus to the needs of the department and to allow for the sale of 32 of the lots. The five lots set aside may be used for other purposes to be determined later.
The total potential value of the lots that will become available for purchase is $2.15 million. All money from the sale of these lots will be reinvested in the social services department`s housing services program.
