Sports Complex Alcohol Survey Results
April 18, 2013
The Sports & Recreation Unit is pleased to present the community with the results of the Survey to gauge public opinion on the sale of alcoholic beverages at the Kahnawake Sports Complex. The survey was conducted this past January, in person, at the Sports Complex and Services Complex, and online at www.kahnawake.com. Over 500 people participated.
The survey results will not determine whether or not alcohol will be sold or in what capacity. Only Chief and Council can decide that. However, they require Community feedback before making a decision. The issue will be brought forward for further discussion and possible decision at an upcoming Council meeting, which should be finalized shortly.
