City to Purchase Ice Resurfacing Machine for CRCA

On October 17, 2016, Council passed a motion to purchase an ice resurfacing machine to support the Chestermere Regional Community Association (CRCA).

The CRCA made the request to Council because its current machine is ten years old and 4-6 years past its replacement due date. In October, it broke down and required significant repairs. The CRCA is renting a model until they can replace it.

“Our community could not afford to lose ice time because of lack of proper equipment. These ice times are for our children’s hockey and ringette programs, figure skating, and public skating,” says Stu Hutchison, City Councillor. “The old ice resurfacing machine was on life-support for years, and we credit CRCA staff for getting maximum mileage out of it.”

Ensuring the CRCA maintains existing recreational facilities and programs aligns with the City’s long-term commitment to offer recreational opportunities for families in the community.

“Supporting the CRCA is vital, especially to help the group of tireless volunteers running our recreational programs. With more than 1100 memberships in 2015, the majority of them being Chestermere residents, there is a clear need for this facility,” says Hutchison.

The funds (up to $175,000) will come from the City of Chestermere’s Recreation Restricted Surplus Fund. The City will purchase the machine and lease it back to the CRCA for a term of five years. After that time, arrangements will be made for the CRCA to continue leasing it or buy it out.
