Former fire hall up for sale

The city is looking for people interested in owning the historic downtown fire hall. Firefighters are now housed in a brand-new building near 18th Street, and the building is vacant.

Touted during the 2010 municipal elections as the possible site for a brewpub, the fire hall was also looked at for the Brandon General Museum.

Renovations to prepare it for museum and office space were estimated in 2007 to be between $2.5–3.5 million. The assessed value of the building itself is $370,000 and estimated commercial taxes would be a little over $17,000.

Would-be buyers can download the city's official request for proposals from the purchasing and tenders area of their website.
