SAULT STE. MARIE, ON — Bent on slashing a proposed 4.6 percent increase to the tax levy, Sault Ste. Marie City Council last night approved a renegotiated deal expected to cut city subsidies to the Lions Club Pointe Des Chenes Family RV Park and Campground by at least $27,000 a year, according to Soo Today.
At the request of both the Lions Club and the city, the new five-year contract also contains a cancellation clause allowing either party to terminate the operating arrangement at any time, with the Lions to be reimbursed for major improvements made to the trailer park, Soo Today reported.
The exit clause is significant because it’s been just three years since the city reviewed the possibility of closing the municipally subsidized campground and selling the property as a cost-cutting measure, Soo Today explained.
