The effort to repair and reopen JMC Ice Arena could be finished up within days.
Officials hope to have the rink back in business next week. It’s been shut down for several weeks after the ice started melting in spots.
Zoo President Scott Mitchell told us tonight they’re removing excess sealant used last season to repair leaks in the tubing under the arena floor. They’re hoping that will allow the refrigerant to flow more freely which would keep the ice evenly frozen. Mitchell says he expects to know much more tomorrow morning.
