Mechanical Work For Goderich Memorial Arena Discussed

Goderich | by Peter Jackson  

CAO Larry McCabe advises against the expenditure, as resident survey nears

The debate on Memorial Arena in Goderich continues at town Council, with the latest issue being replacement of the air conditioning system.

The party room upstairs at the venue is a frequent location for gatherings and activities, but the space is completely enclosed and becoming too hot to be used.

Councillor Trevor Bazinet wants the town to issue a request for proposals, noting that the only quote so far carries a $44 thousand price tag.

Chief Administrative Officer Larry McCabe advises against the expenditure, noting that it could be the start of spending on a building that could be torn down eventually.

The ice was pulled out of the building last year, after an engineer's report expressed concern over the condition of the arena's ammonia-based cooling system

A proposed survey on the future of Memorial Arena will likely offer demolition as an option, along with questions on renovation or sale to a private sector operator.
