Collicutt Centre operating hours are being changed, starting next week.

The recreation facility on Red Deer’s east side will close a half an hour earlier Monday to Saturday.

Starting on Monday, the centre will close at 10 p.m. as opposed to the current 10:30 p.m.

The centre is open at 5:30 a.m. Monday to Friday and at 6:30 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

Most areas within the facility already close at 10 p.m., with the exception of the field house, fitness areas and drop-in soccer activities, which operated until 10:30 p.m.

The change brings those three components in line with the rest of the facility.

The decision to cut back hours was made by city council during the recent 2014 operating budget deliberations.

Sunday hours — from 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. — remain the same.

And the change does not affect contracted bookings of the facilities, such as those of the arenas or soccer pitches.

Commissionaires will continue to be on site until 10:30 p.m. to assist with supervision of the payzone.
