Rothesay Told How Much New Arena Will Cost

A new arena in Rothesay would cost an estimated 13 million dollars which is less than half that of a multi-purpose field house. 

The town's Finance Committee expects $6 million would be contributed by the federal and provincial governments. The President of the KV Basketball Association Peter Bourque would like to see the old arena renovated with three or four courts. 

He says they are running short of gym time, so they have had to cut back the amount of time kids can play and the amount of teams they can support.

Bourque has been told the town will do all it can to accommodate more space for basketball.
