Moscow City Council approves funding for permanent Palouse Ice Rink
MOSCOW, ID —
The weather may be hot outside right now, but come winter time that will change and the Palouse Ice Rink could be seeing a change as well.
On Monday evening, the Moscow City Council approved the motion to move forward in the process of building a new permanent ice rink. The Ice Rink approached the city more than a year ago and requested one-million dollars from the city. Officials say a new rink is needed for the facility.
“It was meant to be a temporary structure so because of their conditional use permit and some other regulations out there they need a permanent ice rink,” said Gary Riedner, City Supervisor. “So they've tried a couple of times to bring this forward, it seems like they've got a good plan in place now.”
The council is considering to use money for the rink from the Hamilton fund which is used to help activities for children in the area.
The city said a new rink could bring in tournaments and opportunities for both children and adults alike. There is no timetable on when the rink would be built.
