Dysart et al Mayor Murray Fearrey says 2017 was a year of progress for the municipality.

Fearrey says he’s thrilled with the upgrades around Dysart this past year.

Fearrey also says the big highlight is a new skateboard park by the arena, which is expected to be ready for use by the spring.

Junction Skate Park will replace the wooden structure on Maple Avenue.

Fearry feels there is an opportunity to turn the old skate park into a recreation place for children.

Fearrey hopes the extension on the municipal office will be finished in early 2018.
