I guess the Northfield Hockey Association (NHA) dads are taking the approach that it’s easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission. In today’s Nfld News: Despite city’s objections, volunteers build warming house at rink.
On Nov. 27, a group of Northfield Hockey Association fathers built the 480-square-foot structure at the rink outside of the ice arena to give skaters a place to lace up, despite warnings from officials that they did not have city approval. “It’s city property and they don’t have a permit and they don’t have permission,” Building Official Jim Kessler said. “They were told (on) Wednesday not to build it. They built it on Friday anyway.”
