Arena focus of investment

The Enderby and District Services Commission has approved $24,302 for a new compressor at the rink

A few bucks are being spent to keep the Enderby Arena a cool place.

The Enderby and District Services Commission has approved $24,302 for a new compressor at the rink.

“You can patch it (existing compressor) but it’s still 40 years old,” said Brad Case, director.

The arena has three compressors in total.

“The second and third compressors are smaller booster units required to generate the needed temperatures while ice is being created at the start of the season as well as to supplement the primary compressor when temperatures are warmer,” said Tate Bengtson, chief administrative officer, in a report.

The new compressor will be installed during the summer.

Meeting pay approved

Enderby and District Services Commission members will start being paid.

It’s decided that the four directors can receive $50 per meetings to a maximum of seven meetings a year.

“It does take out time to go to meetings,” said Denis Delisle, chairperson.

As part of the process, remuneration in other communities were considered.

“Other committees get $153 per meeting,” said Delisle.

Hot dogs on the beach

Anyone hitting Tuey Park for fun in the sun will also be able to dine along the Shuswap River.

The Enderby and District Services Commission has agreed to a hot dog concession setting up at the park this summer.

“It gives someone a chance for a business and there’s an advantage to having someone around — eyes and ears in the park,” said Denis Delisle, chairperson.
