Effort To Revive Sarnia’s RBC Centre Underway

An immediate effort to clean-up Sarnia’s RBC Centre is underway.

The City is trying to revive the facility after assuming operations July 1.

H & S Commercial Cleaning has been awarded a 3 year contract totalling $344,000 for janitorial services at Sarnia’s arenas.

Parks and Recreation Director Ian Smith says the contractor will clean the RBC Centre’s bowl, main level washrooms and suites daily while the dressing rooms and lower area will be cleaned by city staff.

The contractor will also clean the RBC Centre and Sarnia Arena after special events.

Sarnia Council authorized $150,000 in capital spending for upgrades, repairs and improvements at the RBC Centre, including speaker replacement, bathroom renovations and painting.

Council also directed staff Monday to hire an Accounting Clerk in the finance department to oversee financial activities at the centre.
