Pandemic provides fix-it time at rec plex

The Clarence-Rockland Recreation and Cultural Complex is closed for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic so now seems a good time to some needed repair work inside.

City council approved a recommendation from the community services department to take advantage of the recreation complex closure for some “major repairs inside the building” and approved a $93,500 capital project fund to cover the estimated costs. The money will come out of the existing recreation complex reserve.

The YMCA-YWCA manages the facility but the city owns the building. So city staff will supervise the project while the complex management is responsible for seeing that all the work is done.

The list of repair work for the complex includes: replacement of the indoor pool pumps, redoing the ceramic joints in both the pool and change room areas, repainting part of the pool along with an inspection.

Other work needed includes: upgrading the building’s automation system, work on the heating and air conditioning systems, and adding a new intruder alarm system in a section of the facility.
