THREE RIVERS, P.E.I. —Three Rivers Coun. David McGrath is frustrated with the delay in renovating the municipality's small halls considering an inspection report was compiled more than a year ago.

The community buildings were discussed during a Three Rivers council meeting in Georgetown on Jan. 11. Council decided to address a few located across Lower Montague, Cardigan and Lorne Valley last November.

Dorothy Macdonald, Three Rivers' community services manager, said a list has recently been finalized that outlines the renovations needed.

"We're hoping that within a month's time we'll have some indication of whether we have some contractors who are interested," she said.

McGrath questioned what the list outlined that last year’s report didn't. Macdonald replied it outlined the same renovations but listed them in a way that's fairer for many potential contractors to consider.

"It is kind of a frustration if we're making a list today of issues that we knew over a year ago," McGrath said.

Mayor Edward MacAulay noted council hadn't made its decision until relatively recently.
