The fate of the 24-hour low barrier emergency centre at Pete Palangio arena will be decided next week.

North Bay city councillor Dave Mendicino is the chair of Nipissing District Housing Corporation and a board member with District of Nipissing Social Services Administration Board (DSSAB), says the topic will be a key point of discussion during next Wednesday’s DSSAB board meeting.

“There are some options that are going to be presented to the board next week in terms of short and long term solutions to the low barrier,” said Mendicino.
