Councillor Dave Mitchell of Glanbrook just sent out an email to staff asking for a report on the possibility of taking the marble cladding off City Hall and putting it up for sale.
"There may be a lot of residents who would want a piece of historic heritage," he writes in the email, adding, "the options are endless and can be the centre of conversations for years."
He suggests helpfully that the marble can be used for counter tops, door stops, ashtrays, entry steps, candle holders, picture frames and modern art among the "endless" possibilities.
Floating a possible selling arrangement, he states:
I would like the option of looking at a pile of [marble pieces] and picking out a piece to put on my fireplace mantel that would be unique because of its shape.
He concludes by asking for a report on whether this can be done as the heritage-designated marble is removed from City Hall to be replaced with preformed concrete.
