Outdoor rink considered Woodlea/Waskasoo
Pucks could soon be flying again at an outdoor downtown hockey rink. City council will consider reinstating the Woodlea/Waskasoo outdoor snow bank rink at its Monday meeting.
The rink was one of five neighbourhood rinks shut down in an effort to save money last year.
During the 2012 mid-year budget review, council reinstated the Fairview rink, leaving the Sunnybrook, Central School, Glendale and Woodlea/Waskasoo rinks closed.
Council will consider leaving the rink closed, immediately reinstating ice maintenance (snow bank rink for 2012-2013 and installation of end boards for 2013-2014) or wait until the 2013 operating budget deliberations to make a decision.
The additional cost would be $3,830 annually.
