Harrow Arena Getting More Upgrades

More work at the Harrow Arena is approved before $144,000 in grant money is lost.

A number of upgrades including new rubber flooring along with heating and cooling improvements at the arena came in under budget, meaning Essex Council needed to use the money or lose it. The new work includes exterior painting, lighting work and accessibility upgrades to the washrooms.

“I think those things came from the whole wishlist initially and so they were left over from the wishlist and we were able to put some of those back onto it,” says Essex Councillor Bill Baker.

The grant money comes from the federal Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund.
