The Village of Burns Lake is getting some financial help to replace arena ice-making equipment.
The $100,000 funding announcement, which will help replace the facility’s ammonia plant with a freon plant, is one of six new projects from the Nechako-Kitamaat Development Fund Society.
The NKDF is also putting $100,000 into resurfacing at the Baker Airport Runway near Burns Lake, over $11,000 each for improvements at the Decker Lake Hall and Rose Lake Community Club.
Fraser Lake will receive $100,000 to move its museum and visitor centre to a new site along Highway 16 while Vanderhoof will receive $100,000 toward architectural and construction drawings of its proposed aquatic centre.
The Nechako-Kitamaat Development Fund was created in 1997 to fund projects in the region impacted by Alcan’s original Kemano project.
