Sampson's property sales proposal advanced a step

City council members threw their support behind Coun. Kyle Sampson's proposal to see what city-owned land could be put on the sales block.

Council voted unanimously in favour Monday of directing staff to draw up a list of 10 properties with buildings on them and a list of 10 undeveloped sites to be sold either to the tenants or to developers.

"The sale of these properties can create a net positive impact to our overall budget, as well as increase available property for commercial and residential development and usage," Sampson said in a notice of motion to council.

Staff is to return to council with the lists by the July 15 regular meeting.
