Lobby begins as city chooses tobogganing hills
Council has signed off on a plan to identify and make safe at least three city-owned snow hills this winter for sanctioned sledding – despite a long-standing bylaw ban.
It could cost close to $40,000 for the city to add signage, hay bales, monitoring and any other required safety features to the as-yet unidentified hills.
But the race to add favourite hills to the list has already begun – and the city could end up approving more than three official tobogganing spots.
City staff have promised to report back this year on likely locations. (Source: Hamilton Spectator)
