McMeeken Opening Day Delayed
Fall heat wave has caused operational issues
The City of Sault Ste. Marie is informing residents that the opening of the W.J. McMeeken Centre has been delayed. All efforts will be made to accommodate user groups with ice reservations at alternate facilities.
The exceptionally warm weather experienced this Fall prevented the staff from installing the ice according to schedule. In addition, the conditions experienced contributed to mould formation in the dressing rooms.
The City has engaged a company to address this issue immediately and ensure the facility is safe for use. It is expected that the arena will be able to open the week of October 10th pending the successful completion of the ice installation and cleaning efforts.
