  • City Council approved the low bid of $269,000 (excluding GST) from Rakowski Cartage & Wrecking Ltd. for the demolition of the former Brandon Inn building and the former Brandon Real Estate Board building on 9th Street. Demolition of the former hotel building will take into consideration the well-being of a privately-owned property adjacent to it to ensure it remains intact.

     

    Money for the demolition will be taken from the City’s Land Acquisition Reserve ($271,000), while the cost of demolishing the former Brandon Real Estate Board building (approximately $15,000) will be recovered from Renaissance Brandon. Demolition of the two buildings is anticipated to be completed by the end of April.
