February 13, 2006 - At the February 13 Regular Meeting, Whitecourt Town Council was presented with information regarding the environmental testing and abatement program recently
completed at the Whitecourt Twin Arenas and RCMP Century Swimming Pool.

Mr. Hall, a representative from R.H. Services Inc. that conducted the environmental testing, stated that the arena is “absolutely safe” for public use. He reported that it is typical for public and industrial buildings to undergo hazardous material testing, and that the test results from the arena and pool were consistent and ordinary compared to similar buildings. Council accepted Mr. Hall’s report as information.

Town Council received a proposal from Mr. George Cuff, and has contracted his services to perform a Corporate Review. George Cuff provides consulting services in the areas of council governance, organization reviews, and staff and elected official training.
The Development Services Committee has produced a number of brochures detailing information on various development issues. The brochures, which provide information on topics such as residential driveway development, site coverage, certificates of conformance and several others, are available at the Town Administration Office, and can be found on the Town’s website and at various locations throughout the community in the near future.

February 9, 2006 - Woodlands County Council and Whitecourt Town Council held a Special Meeting on February 9 to hear information regarding the Whitecourt Leisure Campus. Representatives from Barr Ryder Architects and Planners and Stuart Olsen Construction discussed and explained recent increases in cost calculations for the
approved project. It was reported that a number of factors, including inflation, detailed design engineering and Alberta’s economic state, have contributed to the increase in cost for the project. In addition, recent findings from a detailed review of the pool showed potential cost increases to mechanical and electrical systems.

The significant change in the cost for the Whitecourt Leisure Campus has necessitated a review of project options. Stuart Olsen Construction, the construction manager for the project, has been directed by both Councils to compile detailed cost figures for various options. Barr Ryder Architects and Planners will be producing
conceptual plans to correspond to the various options presented by Stuart Olsen.

The updated costs and plans are expected to be available for Woodlands County and Town Councils’ review next week.
Woodlands County and the Town of Whitecourt will be reviewing all information and deciding the direction of the project as soon as possible in order to keep costs to the community from rising further. The Town of Whitecourt will continue to keep the community informed on the progress and direction of the project.
