The Town of Redwater is spending some money to repair its recreational centre.
At an Apr.10 meeting, Redwater council amended the town’s 2018 capital budget of $850,659 to include $100,000 in repairs to the Pembina Place roof.
Redwater mayor Mel Smith said work on the roof is ongoing.
“A lot of it has been started. We're just going to be completing it. We needed to put some new insulation in and rewrap some of the pipes. We had a bit of a leak in there and the insulation got saturated. And we had to do a lot of cleaning up and fixing it up.”
Pembina Place is home to an indoor ice arena, a curling club, golf club and a number of meeting rooms. It can also be rented for recreational, social and cultural events. The facility’s Community Cultural Centre has a 400-seat banquet room with a stage, dance floor and full-service commercial kitchen.
Smith said that local citizens are kept up to date about budgeting issues.
“Before we do anything we send out our budget booklet to every resident in town, to give them lots of time to review it and look at it.”
