The Cold Lake Fish & Game Association has approached The City of Cold Lake for financial assistance in expanding their range.
Craig Copeland, Mayor of Cold Lake, explains, “for those who aren’t aware, the local Fish & Game club really reinvigorated the property their own just outside of Cold Lake.” The goal is to make the property, “a showcase facility for Alberta,” Mayor Copeland says.
The club hopes to expand its range for handguns and rifles, as well as, archery and biathlon. “It’s a really neat piece of property that the club is taking over in a big way,” says the Mayor. “They have a big plan to set up a shooting range and they’re asking Council for some seed money.” As the Mayor understands it, “they want to build a two-storey seacan compound for shooting ranges.”
“Council will review this year’s Budget and see if there’s money in reserves to assist the club,” says Mayor Copeland. Council will determine if they will use reserves or earmark money in the 2016 Budget at their next council meeting scheduled for the end of August.
