Seniors group retains $1 rental fee for building

City council has agreed to a renewal of the Shuswap Lake Senior Citizens Society’s lease for its seniors drop-in centre

City council has agreed to a renewal of the Shuswap Lake Senior Citizens Society’s lease for its seniors drop-in centre.

The society has been leasing the property from the city for nearly 20 years at a rental fee of $1 per year.

Council agreed unanimously to a five-year renewal.

“The $1.00 per year rental fee is consistent with property leased to other non-profit groups and allows the society to continue to provide their valuable services without financial burden,” wrote the city’s corporate officer, Erin Jackson, in a report to council.
