Rec commission gets deal on hall

  • Sep. 8, 2008 6:00 a.m.

Port Clements council voted Tuesday (Sept. 2) to allow the QCI Recreation Commission to use the community hall for a greatly reduced fee while the school gym remains closed. The rec commission regularly runs weekly programs in the school gym like volleyball and badminton, which are overseen by volunteers, said coordinator Julia Brobbel in a letter to council. With the school gym not functioning due to renovations until at least October, it’s crucial to find another space to get the programs started in, she said. “”From my experience, September is the time to have all programs up in full force in order to have good numbers and interest,” Ms Brobbel wrote. QCI Rec pays $2 per hour to use the school gym and can’t afford the community hall minimum rental charge of $75, she said. Council members voted to allow QCI Rec to use the community hall for $2 an hour until the gym re-opens.
