Conditions at the Vernon Recreation Complex have local politicians scrambling.
Some Greater Vernon Advisory Committee members are suggesting the cost of a new building should be investigated after being told Thursday that almost $2 million in repairs are needed at the current facility, which includes the indoor pool, Dogwood Gym and auditorium.
“It’s a little disturbing to see where it’s falling apart,” said director Mike Macnabb.
“We will have to look at the foreseeable life of the structure.”
Among the repairs needed is $1.7 million because an undersized dehumidification system has led to damage to the roof and walls of the pool, while incorrectly installed heating lines in 1965 are falling apart.
A special meeting will be held in Janauary to discuss the situation further.
