Wembley Arena Emergency Funding Request – Council approved up to $38,000 for rental and set-up costs to install a temporary cooling tower in the Wembley Arena. The funding is conditional on a successful building inspection and that any insurance rebates for the cost of the temporary rental be returned to the County of Grande Prairie. 

The Wembley and District Agricultural Society requested the emergency funds from County Council following notification that delivery of a new cooling tower to replace the one damaged in the June 2020 fire, will be delayed. The tower is required to enable the mechanical plant to build iceThe Society hopes to have ice available for community groups in November and advised that funding requests have also been directed to the Town of Wembley and industry members. 

The Council Organizational Meeting is scheduled for October 25, 2021. The next Regular Council Meeting is scheduled for November 1, 2021.
