The location for the affordable housing unit in Minden has moved, and it’s costing a lot more. The Kawartha Lakes Haliburton Housing Corporation wants to put the unit beside the arena, where the skate park is. Reeve Brent Devolin says it’s a lot of money, but it’s something the township needs.

The change means it’s going to cost the township an extra 300 thousand dollars, plus about 44 thousand dollars every year for snow removal.

Council agreed to go ahead with the project, and they plan to hold a public meeting.
