Directors vote for arena ice

Columbia Shuswap Regional District directors unanimously approved $5,500 from the Electoral Area F North Shuswap Community Works Fund

Columbia Shuswap Regional District directors unanimously approved $5,500 from the Electoral Area F North Shuswap Community Works Fund to the Village of Chase for the rebuild of their Ice Kube Compressor.

Infrastructure upgrades to the tune of $30,000-plus are needed at the Chase and District Art Holding Memorial Arena, but not all upgrades are eligible for gas tax funds and Area F director Larry Morgan was interested only in supporting the compressor.

Morgan told directors at the May 21 regional district board meeting in Salmon Arm that he had been approached by Chase Mayor Rick Berrigan with a list of arena items in need of replacement or repair.

These included a $3,000 Zamboni repair, a $2,500 replacement of a new stereo and speaker rebuild and a $5,000 (manual) to $25,000 (automatic)  variable speed pump for water pumping.

Other items include $1,200 each for red LED lights for the score clock, new penalty box board control for the score clock and ice paint for the 2015-16 season.

The final item listed was $1,500 to repair/replace eaves troughs on the building.

“As we don’t have anything like that in Area F and residents over the years have used facilities in Chase, I thought it would be good to provide some assistance to our neighbour,” said Morgan.
