McComb May Install Outdoor Ice Rink

8/9/16 – 4:44 A.M.

McComb may have an outdoor ice rink this winter. The Courier reports village administrator Kevin Siferd pitched the idea to council Monday night. If the project is approved, the rink would be installed over the basketball courts at the park during the winter months.

There are two options. The first would install a roofing-like material over the courts and then line the rink with plywood. It would cost around $9,900. A second option would see the village buy an ice rink kit for around $4,300. That price could be lowered if the village buys its own plywood.

No action was taken on the issue.
