    BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Select Board is going to stick with the aging refrigeration equipment at the town’s skating rink for at least one more year to ensure that the ice is ready in the Vermont town for the upcoming season.

    The compressors at the Nelson Withington Skating Rink failed at the end of the last season and the town has been considering investing in a new system. But the estimate came in at almost $500,000, about $150,000 more than the community had set aside for the project.

    The Brattleboro Reformer reported that the board agreed to invest between $30,000 and $40,000 in the compressors at the facility, even though there’s no guarantee the equipment will hold up for another season.

    The skating season is due to start in late October.
