No Rink Purchase

Goderich | by Rick Stow  

Goderich Council wants to see masterplan before committing to outdoor skating.

Just as the Kraft Hockeyville bid was a morale booster for the community -- so too was the possibility of being able to skate at Courthouse Square.

Unfortunately the mild weather meant residents didn't get to log any ice time on the GamePlex rink loaned to the Town by E.J. Bauer in conjunction with our Hockeyville bid.

Now, the Town has declined an offer to purchase the rink at a discount, as Town administration awaits receipt of the Planning Partnership report.

Members agreed with CAO Larry McCabe that it would be prudent to see how the consulting team incorporates the concept of community skating into the masterplan before making any decision.
