On Oct. 9th, councilors approved the staff to award the construction to Madigan Carpentry for $139,000. Also, the council authorized staff to complete the mechanical and cabinetry work at a cost not surpassing $14,460.


At the time of the 2017 budget, there has been discussion about the project process. However, it was not included in the final 2017 Capital Budget as a result of insecurity in terms of federal funding.


On June 21st, $60,000 grant funding was declared, coming from the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure grant.


During the September meeting, Coun. Kate Windle questioned about the opening date.


Recreation direction Kevin Hill replied that they are expecting to have it done in the coming weeks.


“We want to have a celebration on Dec. 21 to see Canada’s 150 out with a ribbon-cutting,” said Hill.
