The Courthouse is currently heated using an electric water boiler, which feeds electric heat registers throughout the main floor of the building.  An aged heat pump provides supplementary heating and cooling to the Jury Room.  Ceiling fans in the main courtroom were replaced in 2018 and assist with air circulation through the courtroom and gallery.  The overall size of the building’s ground floor area is just under 200 sq metres (2150 sq ft), and the main courtroom is open to second floor mezzanines.

  2. To provide details on the model, size, and configuration of the system proposed (interior and exterior equipment locations), including pictures of the equipment;
  3. The system should be designed in such a manner to minimize the visual impact of the units from both the interior and exterior of the building while providing supplementary heating and cooling to the main courtroom of the building, and may include the removal of the existing heating registers on either side of the Judge’s Bench in the Courtroom, if necessary, for the interior heat pump equipment;
  4. Pricing should include any necessary removal of any existing boiler registers, and any electrical work.

Further, quotes are requested to include the replacement of the existing heat pump system that is in the Jury Room to a unit that is appropriately sized for that space.

Local Improvement Charges FAQs

What Are Local Improvements & Local Improvement Charges?

A local improvement is a new or extension to an existing municipal water, sewer, storm water (curb & gutter) systems, or street improvement. A Local Improvement Charge (LIC) is the cost to the property owner receiving benefit from the improvement.
LICs have long been used by municipalities to help cover the costs of infrastructure improvements deemed to benefit a specific neighbourhood or area. In Antigonish County we have embraced the approach of “user pay” in many areas of municipal service such as street lights, fire protection, road improvements, and water and sewer systems. This approach is particularly appropriate for rural municipalities where service levels vary among communities and residents.
LICs are used as a means of directly connecting the costs of capital improvements to those who enjoy them. This practice reflects the reality we face: costs are rising and municipalities require revenue beyond general taxation and infrastructure funding from other levels of government to support growth.
