The new Zamboni is here, the new Zamboni is here!  The City of Cranbrook officially welcomed the new Zamboni for Western Financial Place Monday.

Mayor Wayne Stetski was joined by Colin Campbell, who initially nominated Cranbrook for Kraft Hockeyville 2010, Bree Tironese and Liz Schatschneider representing all the local Hockeyville champions and local campaign volunteers and City staff Stacy Paulsen and Roy Sargent to unveil the new Zamboni.

The $115,000 ice cleaning machine, which was purchased in part with the $25,000 Hockeyville runner-up cheque runs on propane like its predecessor, but has additional emission controls which means little to no emissions make into the air at Western Financial Place during ice cleaning operations.
