Minor hockey groups in Norfolk may need overtime this spring to plan for the 2020-21 season.
Norfolk’s community services department has discussed uncertainty over the upcoming season with representatives of minor hockey groups in Delhi, Simcoe, Port Dover, Langton and Waterford in recent weeks.
Talks are on hold pending public suggestions for use of Norfolk arenas that might lighten the financial load on the county.
As part of sweeping reforms involving a host of Norfolk institutions, Norfolk council invited proposals for innovative uses of county arenas during its levy-supported budget deliberations at the end of January.
To this point, community services staff has divided talks with the local associations into two.
At one table is the Simcoe and District Minor Hockey Association, the Waterford Minor Hockey Association and the Port Dover Minor Hockey Association.
At the second table are the Delhi Minor Hockey Association and the Langton and Area Minor Hockey Association.
