A deal to save CFB North Bay based on a letter of understanding signed in 1998 would be “a disaster” for the city, says Mayor Vic Fedeli.
He pointed to the $1.1 million annual payment in lieu of taxes North Bay receives from the military for the base, as an example; those funds would have to be applied to the municipal cost of operations and maintenance at the base under the letter of understanding.
North Bay would also be responsible for operating and maintaining the new $24-million NORAD Sector Air Operations Centre, which will be housed in an above-ground building now under construction.
