Letter to Council - 2020 Norfolk County Budget
Submitted By Martin Jefferson on Wednesday, March 4, 2020
Dear Members,  


As you may be aware, the recent 2020 Norfolk County Budget included measures taken affecting our community arenas.  These decisions include permanently closing the Simcoe Rec Centre Arena effective May 2020 and also looking to secure the private management of one or more of the other Norfolk arenas.  If such private arena management isn’t in place by September 2020 a second Norfolk arena will be closed.




Your SDMHA Board is extremely concerned with these decisions and the impact they will have on our future hockey programming.  Find attached a letter sent to Norfolk Council, expressing our primary concerns and requesting that these changes be put on hold so that we can work together to find a better path forward.  

Should you wish to share your personal concerns with Norfolk Council, please do so by emailing them at [email protected]
 
We thank you for your attention to this serious matter and request your support in respectfully sharing your concerns.

Marty Jefferson
President
SDMHA
