Antigonish County Warden Russell Boucher says the “arena dilemma is broadening.“ Boucher says it’s frustrating because people are wondering when they can use the Antigonish Arena– but officials are not able to give them answers just yet. Workers encountered about 12 feet more frost than expected as efforts were underway for renovations at the facility. Dealing with that surprise would translate into about 720 thousand dollars more than expected on the final bill.
Boucher says once the results are provided by Dalhousie University– officials from the town and county should meet to discuss their next move. The warden says the issue of federal funding is also in Limbo. He says ACOA has indicated that they also want the Dalhousie University test results before they discuss possible funding any further.
