City renews lease with Parksville Kidie Kollege

At their latest meeting Parksville city council approved renewing a lease with Parksville Kiddie Kollege daycare

Nancy Anderson, the daycare operator, was forced to find more space when provincial regulations changed in 2009.

The daycare at 205 Pym Street happened to border a 456 square metre (4,900 sq.ft.) lot wedged between two houses and the Ballenas Secondary School parking lot containing a decommissioned pump building.

The pump equipment has been removed and the building is too small to sell and is only used for storage, so leasing roughly a quarter of the lot to the daycare is ideal for both parties.

Council voted to extend the lease another three years at $1,500 a year, an option that was included in the original deal.
