THE old Shire Office building in Pioneer Street Foster will be demolished after inspections revealed that the building required extensive structural repairs to be suitable for future use. The building is now vacant after the previous tenant, the Foster Op Shop, relocated to the main street.
“The building demolition works form part of Council’s 2017/18 Capital Works Program” said Council’s Building Supervisor, Alister Fixter. “We are hoping to commence the demolition around the middle of the month and expect it to be completed by early December. Once the site has been demolished it will be returned to a grassed area.”
There has been some confusion regarding the location of the proposed demolition. The building that will be demolished is not the current water board building but is located adjacent to the entrance of the Foster depot.
