The Town of Bruderheim's Public Works team is looking to heat up their second shop to free up space.
With so many items that need to stay warm over the winter, Public Works director Dennis Tomuschat wants money to insulate their other shop.
"It's for the storage of perishables that can't freeze and we're taking up part of our normal work shop to store them now," said councillor Garry Bottorff. "I think it's a good deal."
With an increasing inventory of equipment, Tomuschat told council that the shop is a tight squeeze and can be, at times, a safety concern.
His idea of moving some of the larger vehicles, which are equipped with block heaters, outside brought up the concern of theft.
The thought of a special cabinet to store flammables was discussed with Bottorff vouching for the cabinets, saying he has the inexpensive storage solution in his personal garage.
Council decided to hold off on insulating the "cold shop" for another year.
