Township, football league sign agreement at new facility

Guelph-Eramosa councillor Doug Breen calls it “a pretty big deal.”

Last week council approved a rental agreement between the township and the Ontario Football Alliance (OFA) for space at the new Royal Dis­tributing Performance and Ac­tivity Centre at Marden Park.

The five-year lease for a 471 square-foot administration office commences on Sept. 1 and will generate $484.35 per month in rent for the municipality.

The price will rise each year at a rate equal to inflation.

Breen, who called the OFA football’s equivalent to the Ontario Minor Hockey Asso­ciation, said the agreement is great News for the township.

Council unanimously en­dorsed the agreement. Coun­cillor Roger Knapp was absent.
