Plans for maintenance work at the Quinte Exhibition and Raceway site raised some concerns during Belleville’s budget deliberations yesterday.
The 10-thousand dollar item to upgrade some of the buildings raised some questions use of the site. Council was told the horsemen use it everyday and it is used by soccer players as well. Staff reported that the city was not getting any revenue from this.
Councillor Jack Miller says the city had planned that the site would become residential after the Ex moved to the proposed Bell boulevard site, and since that isn’t happening then it’s time the leases were reviewed. He says the city needs to know what it’s liable for.
The 10-thousand dollars for maintenance was approved but council called for a staff report on the Quinte Ex lease situation.
