Changes to canteen rental fees, invitations open for prospective operators

Champlain Township is seeking a canteen operator for the Vankleek Hill Community Centre. This hasn’t been an easy time for these restaurant operators as the COVID-19 restrictions led to community centre closures and cancellations of sports and recreation activities.

In addition, according to Champlain Township’s Parks and Recreation Director Lisa Burroughs, weekend snowstorms last winter led to additional cancellations, which affected canteen revenue.

The contractor had a hard time to pay the rent and as a result, the township considered a rent reduction in line with the rents being charged for most community centre rentals.

But the rent reduction means that the township is officially advertising the canteen rental again, to be transparent, says Burroughs.

She says that other factors affecting canteens include reduced hockey registrations and that people are making healthier eating choices.

Documents for those interested in applying to operate the canteen are available on the Champlain Township website. Proposals will be received until July 9, 2020 at 3 p.m.
