Just one proposal for ice rink

Michael Schneider

A committee formed to evaluate proposals for an ice skating rink on Rufus Allen Boulevard will ponder just one.

Co-Energy Group, based in Sacramento, was the lone respondent to a Request For Proposals from the city. The final day to submit proposals was July 10.

Co-Energy proposed a 120-by-240-foot enclosed facility with multifloors. The facility could be used for ice skating as well as in-line skating, or any activity that could fit into the building and can be undertaken on either floor surface.

Under Co-Energy’s proposal, Prosites Management, LLC, of Sparks, would manage the facility.

Parks Superintendent Steve Weiss said he was unable to release more details until the proposal goes before the city council. He did say at a previous Parks and Recreation meeting that the cost of turning the rink into a year-round operation would be about $1.4 million.

City Manager Kerry Miller, who attended Tuesday’s Parks and Recreation Commission meeting, said the proposal would go before the council Aug. 4.

The operator must pay $34,000 to the city for the cost of plumbing and fencing.

The rink was to be the site of the South Tahoe Ice Center, but the community group who backed the center fail to raise the money to begin operations.
