With the County of Lambton officially taking over ownership of the former CIBC branch downtown on Tuesday, plans are still being developed for how the second tier municipality will use the structure, which came with a $1.025 million price tag.
Bill Weber, who has put his name up for re-election as Warden (he is Mayor of Lambton Shores), said he expects staff to sift through the various opportunities the ownership represents.
“Staff will spend the coming weeks evaluating the best fits for the building’s use,” he said.
Already, the County had the upper floor of the building leased.
“We were very supportive when it came to exercising our right of first refusal on the building,” Weber noted.
