Individuals participating in public skating at the Taber Arena will no longer be subject to a mandatory helmet policy following a council decision to rescind a previous policy developed internally by town staff.

At their Jan. 26 meeting, town council voted unanimously to adopt, as per the recreation board’s recommendation, that helmets for public skating be “strongly recommended” for all ages.

The policy was passed with no formal debate by town council.

On Jan. 14, a special meeting of the recreation board had revisited helmet requirements for public skating, making the recommendation that a mandatory helmet requirement be repealed in favour of a less stringent “recommendation” that helmets be worn at all times.
