Council approves bait shop against staff recommendations.
West Nipissing council is going against a staff recommendation and has approved a temporary bait shop in Sturgeon Falls. Staff denied the license for several reasons including a health and safety factor. The trailer that will sell the fish bait sits on a construction site and that created safety concerns. However the proponent has made alternative parking arrangements and enough councillors believe safety is no longer an issue. The bait shop will be at the Nipissing Street site until March 15th.
