The Portage Regional Recreation Authority (PRRA) will begin repairs, modification and drainage work on the PCU Centre’s roof this week. Although the centre has only been open for three years and cost more than $43 million to build, faulty construction has caused the board to green light repairs.

The Portage Regional Recreation Authority (PRRA) board of directors met, Tuesday, to award the food services contract for the PCU Centre to the Portage Terriers.

The board scheduled a meeting for 8:30 a.m. to decide between the Portage Terriers and Kae Yurkiw’s Cravings Bakery for the food services contract.

Interim executive director Dale Lyle said that although the contract has been awarded there are many details that still need to be ironed out, such as the starting date and the hours the canteen will be open.

Stan Killam, a board member with the Portage Terriers said that the club is pleased with the new contract.

“We’re looking forward to it. We haven’t been in the canteen business since the old arena. It was a profitable endevour for the Terriers back then, and now we just have to ramp things up a little bit bigger. We’re just really looking forward to doing it again,” said Killam.

The team had proposed to take over the canteen services in the evenings and during the day on weekends. They also proposed to expand into the upstairs canteen in the main arena, which will be fitted with a new hood to allow a deep fryer and grill to be installed and create a full kitchen.

Although the proposal did include the hiring of a manager and possibly two part time staff, most of the operating will be run by volunteers and players.
