Niagara Gazette — The council voted to table the resolution to further explore the geothermal technology.
But the council will need to move forward with a decision soon in order to ensure that the repairs — regardless of who performs them — are finished in time for the next hockey season.
Gene Carella, the owner of Niagara Sports Tournament, said he is comfortable with whatever choice the city makes, so long as the rinks open in time for next hockey season.
“We want that rink open in mid-August if we can possibly do it,” he said. “That’s when our customers are going to be coming back and that’s when the hockey season is going to start.”Contact reporter Justin Sondel at 282-2311, ext. 2252
