City councillors have approved funding for repairs at Charles Clark Square, which will allow the city to open an ice rink there this winter.

Council had previously leaned toward the use of synthetic ice in the square this year. But that plan had to be scrapped after officials identified several issues with it.

The city expects it will have to spend $26,200 on repairs if the ice rink is to be ready for people to skate on next month.

Council approved that funding at a meeting on Monday night.
