Employees with the Town of Fort Erie economic development and tourism services department still have no home in town hall, thanks to COVID-19.
“They’re eager to get in into town hall,” chief administrative officer Tom Kuchyt said. “It’s working well as a department. There’s been a lot of collaboration and planning.”
Kuchyt was answering an inquiry by Ward 6 Coun. Ann-Marie Noyes at Tuesday’s council-in-committee meeting as politicians considered an extension of the lease to the department’s current home at Garrison Square Plaza. That lease was set to expire at the end of November.
Noyes — for years she campaigned to bring what was then known as Fort Erie Economic Development at Tourism Corp. under town control — wondered when the move might be made.
“Do we have a timeline?” she asked.
Kuchyt said the town has issued a request for proposals to secure a contractor to complete the work.
