City puts outdoor rinks on thin ice

Published: September 21, 2007

Toronto parks officials have been looking into how much the city will save by shutting most outdoor ice rinks, according to a confidential city e-mail.

Joe Amato, parks operation support officer, sent an e-mail earlier this month that also suggests a member of Toronto council was planning to put forward a motion calling for the closure of outdoor rinks.

"There is a motion being put forward to close all AIRs (outdoor artificial ice rinks) except civic centres and rinks attached to community centres. So, basically all outdoor rinks in parks," says the memo. "I need to give an estimate of the $$ (money) saved if the motion went forward, so my thinking was to just provide all the cost centres associated with the outdoor rinks and that would be the savings if we closed them."
