On Friday, April 1, Town of Cut Knife Mayor Gwenn Kaye and R.M. of Cut Knife Reeve Brett Robertson received the keys to 113 Broad Street from Jeremy Brown, Board Chair of the Good Shepherd Church.
The Church has recently disbanded and had asked the Town if they might be interested in purchasing the building. The Town approached the R.M. with the idea that the two municipal governments could partner to create a new space suitable for the Cut Knife Library, and potentially, the Clayton McLain Memorial Museum. The building is solid, with a new roof and recent upgrades. The Town and R.M. will provide assistance with any remodeling requirements that are necessary to serve the public.
The Town and R.M. have a history of working together in partnership to share resources to benefit residents of the area. The Cut Knife & District Fire Hall and the Cut Knife & District Recreation Board are two examples that would be familiar to most area residents.
