Two scheduled council meetings at the Village of Radium Hot Springs have been altered for this upcoming winter.
Village of Radium Hot Springs chief administrative officer Mark Read presented information to council about the fact that the regularly scheduled November 11th council meeting fell on Remembrance Day, which would prompt staff to work on the holiday.
Mayor Clara Reinhardt and the councillors agreed it would not be fair to ask staff to work the holiday. As a result, they opted to push back the council meeting to make amends, and postponed the November 11th meeting until November 18th, which consequently pushed back the next meeting until December 9th.
Park layout plans
An inquiry was made regarding plans to construct a roof over Radium outdoor arena by the Golden Triangle Cycling Tour group, which had made a $3,000 donation towards the project several years ago.
The village had developed preliminary designs during the process of evaluating the feasibility of the project, but ultimately determined it would not be viable.
“It’s outside of our scope,” said Reinhardt.
However, according to Read, the village does plan to re-evaluate the existing arena location and design at some time in the future, as part of a comprehensive park layout plan.
