Brooke-Alvinston Councillor Jamie Armstrong wants to know if the people of Inwood still need a community hall.

For decades, the Inwood Fire Hall served as a community centre. Earlier this month, council decided there was no need for a fire presence in Inwood. For some time, council had been considering if it could buy the hall from the Inwood Firemens’ Association, however a deal was never reached.

Today, the hall is up for sale.

“I think that we should, at the very least, do some sort of a study to see if that actual amenity is still required in the community of Inwood,” Armstrong told council.

Councillor Frank Nemeck reminded him the community in Alvinston also bears Inwood’s name and it is expensive to maintain community halls.

“Before we get too carried away, I think we have to take care of what we’ve got here already.”

Armstrong asked for council to put a survey on the municipal website to let people have input.

Council agreed and a survey will be done electronically.
