The Town of High Prairie is borrowing $2 million from the Alberta Capital Finance Authority to pay for its portion of the indoor swimming pool.
Council passed motions to begin the necessary paperwork at its Oct. 22 meeting with little discussion.
As part of the process the public must be given a chance to respond. They get that chance after the town advertises for two weeks. A public hearing is set for Nov. 12 in town council chambers at 7 p.m. to discuss the bylaw. Members wishing to respond to the bylaw can do so in writing before the meeting or verbally.
Total cost of the project is estimated at $4.5 million. The M.D. of Big Lakes is also paying $2 million of the cost while the remaining $500,000 is coming from council's "internal sources" reads town manger Ken Morgan's draft bylaw to council.
Construction of the indoor pool is slated to begin next spring.
