The Township of Schreiber is actively dealing with a number of failed tax sale properties throughout the community. In line with the Strategic Plan, long term financial goals and overall revitalization of the community, the Township is taking action on these properties to make them viable again. Unfortunately, many of the structures located on these properties have become derelict and uninhabitable. To move the community forward and eliminate potential safety hazards, the Township is forced to demolish some of these structures.
The studies in question are known as Designated Substance Surveys (DSS) and are required under Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) to identify the presence of Designated Substances prior to demolition or renovation work. The DSS’s ensure that the demolition of derelict structures is done in a safe manner, protecting workers and the public alike. This funding represents a vital component of the Township’s planned demolition of two large derelict properties in the community.
