The official work begins now on the pro- cess to get Russell Township its own sports dome. Township council has given adminis- tration the go-ahead to get started on the
planning process nee- ded for a sports dome project. The motion to launch the process passed in a registered vote at the Dec. 14 council session with Coun. André Brisson
offered to handle the fundraising, design and construction as a community pro- ject before handing over the completed facility to the muni- cipality to operate.
«I find it a bit fast,» said Coun. Brisson, regarding the administration report recommendation to start the construction planning process now.

abstaining even though he supports the concept of a sports dome for the munici- pality. «I find it a bit fast,» said Coun. Brisson,
Coun. Amanda Simard, who also voted support for starting the process, expressed some concern about the wording of the resolution and got council agreement on
an amended version that states «council directs administration to start the process for a sports dome.» Township Chief Administrator Jean Leduc told council that there will be no start of any actual construction or budget alloca- tions for a sports dome until administration has had a chance to report to council on the results of the entire planning process. That will include drafting and approving a memorandum of understanding between the KinClub of Russell and the township for a community fundraising campaign and a public consultation process to determine the dome’s equipment, layout needs, and programs. Officials with the KinClub have
stated several times that the club is ready to handle the fundraising campaign and be involved in the planning and construction process. The club’s stated goal is to build a community sports dome and then turn it over to the township to operate as part of its recreation programming. Among the planning process recommen- dations listed during the Monday council session, administration suggested that de- velopment charges help cover up to 33.96 per cent, or $1,018,762, of the proposed $3 million limit for a sports dome budget. Admi- nistration also recommends applying early in the new year to the Ontario TrilliumFoun- dation for a recreation grant for the project.
