Motion To Council Wants Arena Efficiencies, Lower Ice Rates
Ward 2 councillor Anthony Ceccacci of South Kent is tabling a motion at Monday’s Chatham-Kent council meeting, looking for efficiencies and saving at local arenas.
With the Municipality in the process of developing an Arena Business Plan, Ceccacci’s motion looks for this plan to include:
- Strategic ways to lower the ice rates where the resultant impact is possibly a reduction tax base; and
- A review of the existing arena canteen operations to determine if operational and financial efficiencies can be achieved through municipality-wide purchasing agreements, coordinated menu development, and potential rebates systems.
- A review of existing marketing strategies and suggested options to encourage revenues and efficiencies.
