Fish And Game Shooting Range To Remain Open

 
 
LETHBRIDGE - A plan to close down the Fish and Game Shooting Range was voted down by City Council on Tuesday evening.

The resolution brought forward by Councillor Faron Ellis called for the shooting range to close it's doors until professional security officials were present at all times and the range permanently shut down at that location by December 31st, 2016. The vote was 6-3 against the motion, with only Ellis, Councillor Carlson and Mayor Dodic supporting the idea.

Range Operator Allan Friesen admits he was a little worried about how the vote would end up, but says "we have certainly a lot of very dedicated and reasonable folks on Council who have researched it at length and we're very pleased that they are supportive of us."

Friesen believes this was just political posturing on the part of Ellis. He says they will continue to work towards relocation plans and are looking for city support to make that happen. Friesen thinks that will provide stability to their operation, saying "we've got a lot of very valuable programs and those have to function, well we've been uncertain about what out status was, so to move forward, to deliver our programs, to get committment behind them, we have to relocate the range."
