Parks Committee, agenda item about 49 Outdoor Artificial Ice Rinks

September 14, City Hall

Mayor Miller's "cost containment" measures include keeping the outdoor rinks locked for the first third of their season. Hopefully outdoor rink users from all over the city will be able to give city councillors some good advice on changing this decision, on Friday September 14 when the Parks Committee meets at City Hall. Outdoor compressor-powered ice rinks use less energy during the low-sun months of November and December. Not opening them until the days are starting to lengthen means higher energy costs. (Earlier opening and earlier closing would make more financial sense). In addition, the City has just spent $10.3 million doing energy retrofits on all the outdoor rinks and some of the indoor ones.
