Sylvan Lake’s former public works building on Erickson Drive has officially been sold.

Councillors, during a special meeting, last Wednesday unanimously approved the sale for $1.55 million to a numbered company which operates as Canadian Engineered Wood Products Ltd.

The property was listed for sale last January and an offer was received the same day.

A number of conditions had to be met prior to finalizing the offer, reported Ron Lebsack, the town’s director of community services.

“The town has two requirements that will carry forward following the final sale and possession date for the purchaser,” his report stated. These include doing environmental assessment updates during 2014 and 2015 on salinity on the site and completing curb and landscaping between the two driveways on 1 Erickson Drive. No further requirements exist for site cleanup, said Lebsack.

Mayor Sean McIntyre and councillors Matt Prete and Chris Lust were not at the special meeting.
