Council approached about changes

Looking at changes to outdoor arena at Rimbey Christian School

A representative from the Rimbey Christian School met with council at its Tuesday meeting to discuss the rebuilding of the school’s outdoor arena.

“The old one is finished,” Pieter Broere told council. “As you know, this arena is a popular spot for winter activities and the only ice rink on the east side of Rimbey. The plan is to completely rebuild the arena and install lighting for evening use.”

Broere asked council to use some of their recycled concrete for the rink.

Mayor Rick Pankiw said Broere had presented a “reasonable request.”

Council agreed to direct administration to talk to public works director Rick Schmidt to determine if the town had crushed concrete to spare and what the cost of the concrete would be.

Pankiw also agreed to work with Broere to set up a meeting with a representative from Fortess to discuss lighting options.

Broere said the Christian School board plans to apply for a Community Facility Enhancement Program grant to help cover costs of the renovation.
