Snow build-up and warm weather are contributing to leaks at the Pomeroy Sport Centre.

City Manager Dianne Hunter says the City is speaking with the building’s developers to investigate the leaking roof.

Hunter says that the roof of the Centre leaked last year as well, but the City is giving the companies time to investigate the new problems.

No matter what the problem with the roof is, Hunter stresses that the City will not be responsible for any costs associated with these leaks.

Hunter says that the Northern Vac walking track will be closed only if the leaks cause a safety issue but adds that, in the meantime, the City is trying to deal with the leaks as best it can.
