The Kapuskasing Recreation and Culture Committee will be testing the waters with the public on the prospect of a new pool.

The NOHFC has approved $1-million in funding for the project, something the town’s CAO Yves Labelle was quick to point out is a good sign.

He says recreational funding can be hard to come by at a provincial and federal level.

The committee has prepared a survey which will be going through town council before it will be mailed out and available online.

The committee has a tentative plan to hold a public meeting once the surveys are completed.
