The Friends of Kinsmen Park (FOKP) want to replace the shack at the park’s skating rink, a representative has told Kindersley town council.

Tammy Anderson-Jackson, a spokesperson for the group, appeared before council on Sept. 11 to seek approval for the plans to replace the old shack at the outdoor rink.

Anderson-Jackson said if council approves the plans, the group would take the next steps to build a new shack. She said FOKP has started the procurement process and is accepting quotes for the project.

Mayor Rod Perkins said most council members would have seen the drawings in their council packages and asked Anderson-Jackson if the plan is to demolish the old shack. She said that was the plan.

Anderson-Jackson said the group will do what needs to be done to get the project off the ground. The plan is to build the shack next spring. The group will continue raising money for the project, along with other improvements at Kinsmen Park. The official plans were drawn up by Karley Twin, the delegate said.

Perkins said he couldn’t speak for everyone on council but he believes town officials are happy the old shack is going to be replaced. He recognized that the building is in rough shape.
