Kincardine Council has decided that the house located at the airport is a liability and, therefore, as of June 30th (2015), it will be no more.

Council voted at Wednesday night's meeting (Feb. 18th) to demolish the house.

The house, at one time, was an incentive for an airport manager to work and live at the airport but, that ended in  2007 and, given that the airport contract ends this year, that is apparently no longer an option.

The house has a long history.  From Carol and Dave Little (Carol was former airport manager) to another couple who took excellent care while living there temporarily, the quality of tenants continued to deteriorate to a point where tenants were arrested on drug charges.

In May of 2012, tenants who had rented the house for a year, left the house in such a state that a dumpster and two dump trucks had to be brought in with a cleaning crew to get rid of the garbage and mess.

Then, in the summer of 2014, Kincardine Council decided to divest the municipality of the house.  At that time, CAO Murray Clarke said that there was little or no economic return to the municipality even with a responsible tenant.

Despite the issue coming before Council on several occasions, the final decision for demolition was not approved until the recent Council meeting setting a June 30th deadline.
