Winfield Arena project receives additional $1 million

Wetaskiwin County received $1 million in Municipal Sustainability Initiative funding program to put toward the Winfield Arena project.

Wetaskiwin County council received $1 million from the Government of Alberta in Municipal Sustainability Initiative (MSI) funding program to put toward the Winfield Arena Rehabilitation project.

On April 14 2015 council approved the request to take $111,000 in unused 2014 MSI funding to put toward a Winfield Arena Engineering Report.

County CAO Frank Coutney says this additional $1 million is added on top of funds already in place. “The million is for the construction part itself.”

On April 21 2015 council approved reducing the Battle Lake Trail project from $1 million to $500,000 and shifting the funds to the Winfield Arena.

Coutney says the plan is to tender in December or January and start construction once hockey and skating is done and the ice is gone. “What we want to do is make sure it doesn’t interrupt the season.”

The Winfield Arena Rehabilitation project will include: removing the existing concrete slab, insulation and sand; condition soft clay or replace it with stiffer clay, install heating lines, headers, with heater exchanger, and temperature sensors; install HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) unit in dressing rooms; new aluminum arena boards and plexi glass.

Coutney says the work is estimated to be covered by the $1 million.
