Arena Opening Delayed

The District of Fort St James is, and has been working diligently to maintain the aging chiller infrastructure at the Fort Forum Arena. Annual maintenance has been ongoing as per TechnicalSafety BC requirements over the summer. The Ice Plant at the arena was installed in the early1960’s and requires maintenance to ensure that the community can use the arena safely eachseason. Early this week, an integral part to the system suffered a malfunction and will require areplacement part and 7-8 weeks for repair. Despite the efforts of the public works department,contractors and arena staff, the breakdown of the chiller could not have been anticipated. Districtstaff are disappointed about the delay in ice installation but continue to work hard to makerepairs and strive to reopen this vital community asset as soon as possible.
