The Elora Rocks Hockey Club Interest-Free Loan
The Elora Rocks Hockey Club (the club) has existed for over 100 years. This community organization has a long history with many successes along the way. However, the club has experienced some financial difficulties financially through recent years.  The Elora Rocks Hockey Club management team has shared with staff they continue to struggle to pay ice rentals annually each season and asked Council to forgive the current balance of the Elora Rocks Hockey Club interest-free loan of $25,149.20.

Council deferred consideration of the current agreement with the Elora Rocks Hockey Club to staff, to outline additional options related to restructuring of the debt with the report to be brought back to Council at the June 10th meeting.
