It appears that the Morrisburg Shopping Plaza will be getting a skating rink for the Christmas season.
At the October 4th South Dundas council meeting Councillor Jim Graham reported that the Morrisburg Business Improvement Association (BIA) met the previous evening and “agreed there should be a better location.”
Hugh Garlough, Manager of Public Works, said that he’d like to “thank the BIA for accepting my thoughts” and went on to say that “we will do our best to work with them (and when it) comes time, do whatever we can to cooperate.”
In terms of where the rink will be located, he reported that “the mall location south of the clock tower will not be used as the township has concerns with this location.”
Possible locations were discussed, including the area of the parking lot where the former visitor’s centre was located. However, Garlough informed the Leader that “the location of the BIA’s skating rink has not been decided as of yet.”
“The location will be decided by township staff and the BIA representatives at a later date.”
