Paradise plans for slight arena upgrades

·1 min read

Patrons of the Double Ice Complex should expect some slight upgrades around the building.

The first upgrade won’t be visible, but it’s absence would certainly be felt.

The Town voted to update the software that controls the heating system at the Paradise Double Ice Complex.

Council voted unanimously for ControlPro Inc. to provide the heating system software update at a cost of $11,948, HST included.

Paradise will also be putting some money towards fitting out a new seating area.

“We have been talking about this on the committee for the last couple of years, trying to get some furniture for the area to make it a little bit more appealing, and a little but homey,” explained councillor Patrick martin, chair of the Recreation and Community Services Committee.

The Town put out a limited call to obtain bids for providing and installing seating. Three bids came in, and the Town voted to award the quote to Dicks and Company in the amount of $16,168, HST included.

Both were items budgeted for in 2020.
