Civic Centre rate-structure bylaw moves forward

Now that the newly renovated Golden Civic Centre has been up and running for a while now, the Town is revisiting the rates

Now that the newly renovated Golden Civic Centre has been up and running for a while now, the Town is revisiting the rates.

During the regular council meeting on Tuesday Aug. 21, the Golden Civic Centre Rates Bylaw (Bylaw No. 1305), went through its second and third readings.

After the first reading in April 2012, council requested that staff undertake additional consultation with the facility’s existing operator.

Manager of Recreation Services Jordan Perovics did just that, and after making some significant changes, Counillor  Caleb Moss described the new bylaw as “a much cleaner and tighter document.”

The bylaw outlines the rates for various events (all categorized into the A, B, or C price categories), and clearly defines all terms, and which events fall under what category.

As sufficient data on usage has not yet been collected (since the facility only recently reopened), council recommended to staff that a clause be added at the end of the document stating that the rate structure be revisited on a regular basis as more data comes in.

Data has been collected since the doors opened, and is currently with Kicking Horse Culture.

Council suggested the first review happen within18 months, which would be September, 2013, after the busy wedding season ends.

“It’s a good trigger for everyone involved… it’s just a good way of ensuring it gets done on a regular basis,” said Coun. Ron Oszust
