Civic Future

The final junior hockey game was played at the Civic Arena on the weekend.  It was on the anniversary of the opening of the 80 year old facility that is going to be torn down. Saturday was a night  full of memories as the game was played before a full house.  It wasn't the outcome fans were hoping for the Vipers lost 3-2 to Prince George

Many people are wondering what we'll see on that site in the future. Mayor Akbal Mund says at this point the plan is still for a park, but adds that can easily change with a new council.

The next local general election will be held in October of this year.

It's the first council meeting of the new year.  Councillors are getting an update on the construction of the new arena.

Eight months into construction, and the Director of Recreation Services, Doug Ross, says the expansion of Kal Tire Place is  on time and on budget.  The roofing system will be installed by the end of this week. Ross says the plumbing and mechanical system installations are well ahead of schedule.
