Big renovations and new projects are on the way in Gibbons.
The town will be spending $1.67 million on projects in the upcoming capital budget.
It may seem like a steep price for the town of roughly 3,000 residents, but the upgrades will be completely funded by federal and provincial grant programs and reserves.
Major infrastructure upgrades will be coming for water and sewer lines. Replacing water mains and hydrants will also a focus. Equipment upgrades, land improvements such as the Center Park Playground and required maintenance will round out the budget.
"As we move forward, our projects are coming in line with the municipal development plan. It's going really well and we hope to keep improving," said mayor Dan Deck.
Other projects slated to happen in Gibbons this year include a new outdoor rink, changing room shack and a new ice plant.
The capital budget was approved at the Apr.25 council meeting.
