New town office
debate continues
Times Editor

The debate continues as to the location of a new

town office build in Strathmore.
Helpful hampers A large contingent of town residents was at the
last regular town council meeting to throw their
support behind Harrison Gray, a long-time member
of the Kinsmen Club, who made a presentation to
Page 19-20 council.
“I’m greatly concerned about the mayor and the
councillors’ approach to building a new office in the
northwest corner of the Kinsmen Park,” he said. “I
think there are numerous flaws in it, and I hope to

what could be done.”
Gray added he is in favour of a town office but
thinks the location is “terrible.”

potential location being discussed is the parking lot
at the north end of Kinsmen Park.

fishing docks, gazebos and farmers market, and it is
