Huntsville council is weighing all options before passing Chaffey Hall ownership to Lions Club
Huntsville council is going to review all options before moving forward with handing over Chaffey Hall to the Lions Club.
During a General Committee Meeting, council was presented the suggested agreement that the property be sold to the club for two dollars.
However, Councillor Karin Terziano says before any decisions could be made, members heard about some issues between the club and the Huntsville Theatre Company, which leases space at the hall.
Due to these discussions and concerns, Terziano says council decided to open discussions with both the Lions Club and HTC to find the best solution moving forward.
Terziano says one option suggested was HTC could instead take over ownership of the property and lease space to the Lions Club.
She says, in that case, town staff will need to find out if there are any legal obligations to passing ownership to the Lions.
If ownership passes to the Lions Club, the town has agreed to provide the organization an annual $16,000 grant for the next two years.
Terziano says they hope to have a report back from staff on the best option during the next General Committee meeting in November.
