The Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake is reducing operating hours at the community centre due to a “massive decline” in people using the gyms facilities.
As of Oct.14, the community centre is open from 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday to Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
The reduced hours will continue for four weeks at which point it will be re-evaluated based on staff observations and customer feedback.
“We have seen a massive decline in the number of people using the gym, especially during weekday mornings, and on weekends,” Dan Maksenuk, acting manager of operations, said in a news release.
“As such, staff has decided to temporarily reduce hours of operation in order to adequately maintain fiscal responsibility amid user changes.”
While the customer service desk and fitness area are open, room bookings and rentals remain unavailable.
