Expressions of Interest
The Town of Mahone Bay is seeking Expressions of Interest from parties interested in the purchase of the Old Fire Hall (184 Kinburn St.).
The Town is the owner of the Old Fire Hall located at 184 Kinburn Street, Mahone Bay. This building was home to the Mahone Bay and District Fire Department until the new Fire Station on Hawthorn Road opened in 2022; it is currently being used on a temporary basis by the Town’s Public Works Department while Council makes a determination on the potential sale of the building. This Request for Expressions of Interest is issued to assist Council in making this determination. Council reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to accept or reject any or all submissions.
If the Town Council proceeds with the sale of the Old Fire Hall building the MGA requires the Town to obtain market value for the sale. Section 51 permits municipalities to sell property at less than market value to a nonprofit organization that the council considers to be carrying on an activity that is beneficial to the municipality.

We are aware of the power outage that is currently impacting our utility customers. This is a wide spread outage due to a NS Power transmission issue. Estimated restoration time is 12:34am.
