FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. -- Fort St. John City Council forked out around double the amount expected for upgrades at the Kids Arena Fieldhouse.   

The facility is used or recreation like soccer but also hosts community events.

The aging field house is set to see upgrades throughout including making the upstairs wheel chair accessible.  

However, staff said the over $736,000 cost increase is due to supply and pricing demands.

City council awarded the $1.43 million tender to Fort St. John’s S. Young Enterprises.
