Crowsnest Pass may be receiving aid to improve the local Sports Complex.

Council was presented with an opportunity to apply for a grant in the range of $250,000 that would help the community by either lowering the cost for a new ice plant, or improving the complex in other areas.

The grant program is centered on reducing Greenhouse Gas by changing to a more efficient plant.

Administration says that the municipality of Crowsnest pass may receive the grant or $175 per ton of Greenhouse Gas reduction once the application would be approved.

A requirement for this grant is that the municipality would need to conduct an Engineer study of the facility needs prior to approval for the grant.

The municipality would pay for the study originally, but would be fully reimbursed upon successful approval of the grant.

Additional incentives are a possibility as well based on when the contract is signed and the completion date of the project.

Overall, the Director of Finance for Crowsnest Pass, Ola Oladele, doesn’t see any problems in receiving this grant.

“We've talked to Efficiency Alberta. We've had many meetings with them and it's looking very promising.”

The deadline for the application of this grant is March 31, however the municipality plans to have their application in well before that deadline.
Council will make the decision on how to use the grant money, once the application is approved.
