News Council expected to put Whitney fire hall up for sale SHARE ON: Bob McIntyre, staff Monday, Nov. 4th, 2019 An aerial view of the property where the former Whitney fire hall sits. (City of Timmins) If you’re in the market to buy a fire hall, Timmins City Hall has a deal for you. It’s one of the topics coming up at Tuesday’s regular meeting of city council. Council will deal with a resolution to put the former Whitney Fire Hall up for sale through the Request for Proposals process. The property on Dixon Street in Porcupine isn’t being used as a fire hall anymore, since the Whitney volunteers moved into the new complex at Northern College. Timmins-Porcupine Search and Rescue has already shown some interest in buying it. When you combine its two storeys, you’re looking at a combined floor space of just over 4,000 square feet. The building’s been appraised at $250,000. Also at the council meeting, Chamber of Commerce president Val Venneri will present the 2019 business confidence report. In a nutshell, it says local businesses remain positive with an outlook to grow. The meeting starts at 6:00pm.
