Council votes to hire ice arena consultant
The Janesville City Council voted Monday to spend no more than $10,000 on consultants to study the needs of a new ice arena. Several council members said it would be a good investment before potentially spending millions on a new arena.
The council also voted to extend a private group's fundraising deadline for the project. The group will be able to review the consultants' findings before proceeding with the fundraising. Nearly $690,000 has been raised by private donations, but $1.5 million was needed by the March 1 deadline if the city was expected to contribute $2.5 million to the project.
