KAMLOOPS - The city is receiving $865,000 to cover damage at the Tournament Capital Centre fieldhouse.

Through mediation, a settlement was reached between the City of Kamloops and all the parties involved as compensation for damage and repairs to the building, according to a City of Kamloops media release.

Shortly after being built the building had moisture issues. Experts identified the issue as a problem with the building’s envelope caused by its design and construction.

Council gave to go ahead for the repairs, expected to be around $855,000 at the time, and litigation if needed in May 2013, but a resolution came through mediation.
