Transitional period:
The current custodian has operated with the Village under a long-term contract. The Custodian is retiring his position after many years of service. It is our desire that prospective custodians agree to work with our current custodian to review key components of the Community Centre systems and cleaning standards. The Village will continue to retain the services of our current custodian during the transition period to ensure the new custodian is ready and able to take over care of the building.
