Municipality of Wawa Dropping National Car Rental Service

The Municipality of Wawa's getting out of the car rental business.

While the previous Wawa Municipal Council had agreed in December 2015 to take on National Car Rental service - out of fears it would otherwise leave the community - Mayor Ron Rody explains Council has now approved plans to drop out of that agreement.

Mayor Rody does not specify who is interested in taking on the service locally.

Under the agreement, the Municipality must give 30 days notice, so it will continue providing the service over that period.

The decision was made during last night's special meeting, which also saw Council presented with 2018 consolidated financial statements from KPMG, who noted the municipal audit was "clean" with "nothing of significance to report", calling 2018 a "pretty good year for the municipality", which was left in a "strong financial situation".
