Users of the Winfield Arena can breath a sigh of relief following the announcement that $121,333 has been approved by the federal government’s Recreational Infrastructure Canada Program for a new ice plant.

The funds, which were disbursed to the County of Wetaskiwin, will cover one-third of the project’s overall cost of $364,000 with the county and the Winfield Minor Hockey Association funding the remaining costs.

“I am extremely pleased that the county has been able to secure funding towards this valuable project which provides service to residents throughout the west end of the County of Wetaskiwin,” said division 6 Councilor Nancy Watson. “This project has been made possible through the long-term vision of county council as a part of the dedication of the municipality to ensure that residents can live, work, and play in the community. The replacement of the ice plant in the Winfield Arena will provide continued uninterrupted recreational service to the users of the facility.”

Funding for the project will include all materials and labour required to remove and replace the existing ice plant.
