Mayor of Bonnyville, Gene Sobolewski says Town Council, “received a letter from BCHS and what they wanna do is refurbish the tennis courts and some of their basketball.” The plan is to give the courts an upgrade, “basically, create some better facilities,” says Mayor Sobolewski.
BCHS requested a letter of support from Town Council, on May 12th, says the Mayor, who continues to explain that Council is behind the venture, “we jumped on that one and we’re providing unanimous support for that type of endeavour.”
