Council shoots down need for Zamboni upgrade


The Zamboni that was linked to at least two emissions scares at the McMeeken Arena earlier this year will not be replaced as city staff has recommended during budget deliberations tonight.

It was the desire of councilor Matthew Shoemaker to try and reduce the levy for next year, saving just over $120,000 to the taxpayers.

Now the 21-year-old Zamboni will not be replaced and was already moved to the Essar Centre, where there is better ventilation, where it will continue to be used.

Council supported his motion even though the mayor did not.
