The City of Fort St. John has a big announcement regarding sponsorship for the Enerplex.
On Wednesday 29th, the City says it will unveil a substantial new sponsor. Earlier this year, the City sent out a sponsorship package to associate a corporate name with the Enerplex facility, with a deadline of April 24 for receipt of proposals.
But, there was little interest from businesses, with most business owners citing poor economic times as the main reason for not submitting a proposal.
At a May City Council meeting, Mayor Bruce Lantz announced he would pitch the proposal to some oil and gas companies in Calgary.
Now, WL Construction became the first sponsor in June, when they announced they would be sponsoring the arena ice resurfacing machine for $20,000.
There is still sponsorship opportunities available, visit fortstjohn.ca for more information.
