Kensington Town Hall
KENSINGTON – The Town of Kensington is spending an estimated $20,000 to fix a drainage problem at a property it leases to a childcare facility.
The water problem at Fun Times Early Childhood Education Centre at 28 Garden Drive is long-standing; water collects in large quantities in the building’s parking area following a strong rain or snow melt.
Geoff Baker, town administrative officer, indicated in his recommendation to council that completing the work would improve the property for patrons of the facility, many of whom are area residents, and allow the town to manage the flow of water on the property into the future.
Genivar Engineering completed a design plan for the work earlier this month.
It includes the placement of three catch basins, approximately 65-metres of storm sewer main pipe and minor grading to ensure storm water is directed into the catch basins
Council, at its October meeting, directed Baker to approach construction companies and collected prices for the work.
Baker expects the work to be completed by the end of November at the latest.
