Walkerton | by Robyn Garvey  

Brockton wants to know how many more years it can get out of the pool and the arena.

Brockton wants to know how many more years it can get out of its Walkerton Arena as well as the Walkerton Centennial Pool Facility.

As such the municipality is having a Building Condition Assessment Study done conducted on both the arena and pool facility.

The study will cost 25 thousand dollars in total, 15 thousand dollars for the arena study and 10 thousand dollars for the Centennial Pool Facility study.

Mayor Chris Peabody says the building analysis study will help prioritize the needs of the facilities over the next ten years.

This includes identify facility deficiencies, strengths as well as determining the best course of action in the future whether it be renovation, repair or replacement.

The 1972 arena and pool facility are well used and play a very important
role in the community.

Over the years, thanks to some government grants a number of retrofit projects have taken place at the arena to keep it going as long as it has.

Peabody says it is now time to determine exactly what needs to be done in the future.

Once the two studies are complete, a report will come back to Council with recommendations.

The tender for the two studies has been awarded to The Pinchin Group.

The tender came in under budget by 5 thousand dollars.
