Marina lease extended

Details have yet to be finalized before Port Colborne can issue its request for proposals for operation of the marine supply centre at Sugarloaf Marina.

Though the city currently has a public-private partnership arrangement in place, issues have risen regarding certain “grey areas” of the agreement interpreted differently by both the city and the private operator.

The new RFP will clarify those grey areas and include several changes to ensure the city’s direction is more clearly understood and enforced.

The draft RFP document was before city council on Tuesday night, but it was not complete. Council opted to wait for the completed document before providing approval and having it issued.

In the meantime, council has given Port Colborne Marine, the marina’s current service provider, a six-month lease extension from Dec. 31 to June 30.

Face-lift for Killaly

A face-lift is in the future for Killaly St. W.

Utility relocation on the regional road, between Knoll and King Sts., will begin as soon as this winter in preparation for road work that will include upgrades to curbs, gutters and sidewalks, and installation of bicycle lanes and intersection turning lanes.

Work will also be done by the City of Port Colborne to replace a watermain, rehabilitate sections of sanitary infrastructure and add storm infrastructure where required for future projects.

A public information meeting regarding the project is Wednesday, Oct. 17 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at city hall.

Road audit wanted

Port Colborne is requesting a safety audit on the intersection of Main St. W. and Steele St.

Following several collisions, including one late last month that saw a transport truck plow into a corner home, Ward 3 Coun. Bea Kenny is requesting a review of the area by Niagara Region.

As Main St. W. is a regional road, the city will request the audit at the region’s expense.
