The Fernie Memorial Arena will be closed to the public longer than expected.
Staff with the City of Fernie confirmed that repairs to the arena’s roof trusses were slower to get started than planned.
The update came from contractors working on the project, who say the delayed work means the project won’t be completed by December 1st.
The city has now set December 8th as the potential new date for the arena to be re-opened.
No word yet on how that will affect December 1st’s game between the Fernie Ghostriders and the Kimberley Dynamiters.
