October 21 Recreation Committee Meeting
Jordy noted that today was the first official night of the hockey season. The hockey camp this weekend had 29 kids involved in the 2 day camp and was put on by Jordy, Shay Stephenson and Kolby Gibson. Expected profit from the camp is $1500-1700.
Councillor Grotheim mentioned that the Legion is interested in moving the War Memorial up to the corner park kiddy corner to the Town Office. They think this could open them up to grant money for the install. Jordy mentioned that this would give the corner some meaning and would be a good look for the Town. More information was requested and will be an on-going conversation.
Jordy and Kyle mentioned that it is an option to move the boiler from the old pool into the arena as a replacement and mentioned that Rafoss Plumbing thinks it could even be more efficient than the current one, which is 40 years old. This could save lots of money for a fix that would normally cost $70,000 if something happened. Jordy is seeking out quotes to prepare for next year’s budget. He will also get a quote to fix the showers in the rink on a 3 year program starting with one dressing room quoted.
