The Mayor updated the situation with the Farmers' Market today on her blog:
I had an e-mail from a patron of the Farmers’ Market this morning asking about the timeline for the structural repairs. Here is the most recent information:
The tender was awarded the week of December 20th, 2010. A purchase order has been issued to RusCan General Contracting Inc. of Concord, Ontario.
At this time, the completion date will be the end of February at best, however, staff are working with the general contractor to find ways of improving on this date.
The completion date relies heavily on the delivery of the steel channels which need to be cut to length and pre-drilled in the shop before they arrive on site. The general contractor is working with the steel fabricator to nail down this date. Once we have this information, I will provide another update.
