Study finds new ice rink, pool most viable


North Mankato Mayor Mark Dehen, meeting with Anderson and Freyberg as part of the two cities' Intergovernmental Committee, suggested more than forwarding the reports.

There should be a sports facilities "summit," Dehen said. "Bring 'em all together."

As for the ice rink — however the final decision is made — it needs to be made soon, Dehen said. The Mankato Area Hockey Association, which is offering $300,000 to help construct a new building, is so desperate for more ice that it's planning to use that money to "throw up a pole barn" by 2015 so players will have a place to practice.
