Budget Deliberations To Include $250,000 Per Year Toward New Arena Fund
Tonight’s Municipality of Chatham-Kent budget deliberations will include a proposal to begin setting aside $250,000 per year for arena replacement.
The budget item, which is an annual contribution from Chatham-Kent’s taxes, would go toward preparing for the replacement of Chatham-Kent’s aging arenas.
Recommended by Chatham-Kent’s Executive Management Team, the budget item has support of multiple councillors, but is likely to be a topic of debate.
Without current Provincial or Federal funding for an area, the plan would allow the Municipality to proactively plan for when funding support comes available.
