More public art is taking shape in downtown Enderby.

More public art is taking shape in downtown Enderby.

City council has given the green light to the Enderby Arts Council installing a new sculpture in Belvidere Park next to the Shuswap River.

“It will be really nice,” said Coun. Beryl Ludwig.

The sculpture will portray people involved in a log rolling contest as a way of paying tribute to the  logging industry and the river’s role in Enderby’s development.

This will be the second piece of public art initiated by the arts council.

“People really like the salmon sculpture at city hall and they’ll like this one too,” said Ludwig.

Recreation Fees Approved

A new fee structure is in place for Enderby and area parks and recreation.

Council has adopted the parks, recreation and culture fees bylaw.

The fee schedule includes a $2 drop-in parent and children skate.

Adult ice rental will be $148 an hour until July 31, 2012 and then it will increase to $151 an hour until July 31, 2013.

Drop-in shinny hockey ice rental will remain at $20 an hour while it will be $30 an hour until July 31, 2012 for dry-floor roller derby and then $30.50 until July 31, 2013.

Public swim for adults will be $3.75 next year (compared to $3.50 in 2011) while it will be $3.25 (the same as 2011) for youth and seniors. The rate for families will be $8.75 (up 25 cents).
