Town welcomes funding from MCCAC to support electric ice resurfacer

 STRATHMORE, ALBERTA | October 24, 2022 – The Town of Strathmore has purchased a new electric ice resurfacer for the Strathmore Family Centre thanks to funding from the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre (MCCAC).

 “Strathmore’s recreation facilities are very important to our residents, and this new electric ice resurfacer means better air quality for all our users,” said Pat Fule, Mayor of the Town of Strathmore. “This is another step toward meeting Council’s strategic goal of environmental stewardship.”

 The new Olympia model replaces an older Zamboni that had reached the end of its service life. The $189,635 cost of the Olympia was supported by $50,000 provided through the MCCAC Electric Vehicles for Municipalities Program.

 “This Olympia is a very good investment for the Town. We expect lower maintenance costs for the unit and a 5,000-hour lifespan – about 8-10 years. It’s quieter to operate as well, so a better experience for the driver as well,” said Family Centre Arena Manager Craig Dilts.
