Council approved the use of city equipment for hauling dirt into the arena for the 2014 Williams Lake Indoor Rodeo, and the use of a loader to remove the earth post-event.

As they have since 2007, members of the International Union of Operating Engineers will volunteer labour to operate equipment to haul the dirt in and out of the arena from the Indoor Rodeo, which takes place April 18-20.
