Kincardine council has approved a new lease agreement with five groups that use the facility.

The deal begins on January 1st and goes for five years and has an annual built-in rental increase of 1.5% per year.

It will come back to council for final approval December 20th.

Mayor Anne Eadie is pleased with the move, saying "We are very supportive of the arts.....and we're very fortunate to have so many dedicated volunteers that put in hours and hours for us."

Eadie says the groups have pro-rated rental costs based on space used, with the Kincardine Theatre Guild being charged the most at just over $6,000 a year.

The least belongs to the Grey Bruce Woodturners Guild at almost $650 annually.

Others include the Bluewater Summer Playhouse at just over $2,700. 

Since June, the Playhouse has worked out its rent arrears with the municipality and will continue to present professional summer playbills.

The following is a list of all the tenants:

Kincardine Theatre Guild - $6,033
Kincardine Scottish Festival & Highland Games - $3,232
Kincardine Artists Inc - $3,230
Bluewater Summer Playhouse - $2,757
Grey-Bruce Woodturners Guild - $647

Mayor Eadie says all groups have agreed to the new proposed lease agreement.

Revenue received will go towards off-setting facility operational costs.
