WRCC replaces dryer that caused January fire


A dryer that malfunctioned at the West River Community Center last month, causing the facility to fill with smoke and close for a day, has been replaced.

WRCC Facility Operations Manager Xavier Dukart told the Dickinson Park Board commissioners during its regular meeting Monday that the new machine is installed.

"We got a new one in and it's up and running," Dukart said. "It's a bigger capacity dryer and should use a little less energy."
