Full building audit to take place at Aquatic Centre

Sylvan Lake town councillors on Monday approved a scope expansion for work on the Aquatic Centre.

Sylvan Lake town councillors on Monday approved a scope expansion for work on the Aquatic Centre, paving the way for a full building audit to now take place.

The Aquatic Centre was closed earlier this year due to structural concerns, and will remain so until a full audit of the building can be carried out.

Council in March approved $140,000 in funding for temporary shoring, non-destructive testing and an engineering assessment on the building. Public works director Dave Brand told council there were enough funds remaining in that budget to cover the cost of the audit.

At the time of the meeting, two proposals had been submitted for the audit, ranging in price from $32,300 to $87,500.

Mayor Sean McIntyre said Town staff and council receive “questions by the day of the pool’s status,” and requested to staff that they keep the public up to date on the project as it develops.

“Users are just wondering where we are in the process,” he said. “Every bit of information we can give to them is of benefit.”

Chief administrative officer Betty Osmond said she would ensure updates as they become available would be posted to the Town’s website.
