arena seeks funds
WOODSTOCK — A sports complex that faces an uncertain future is seeking $125,000 to keep running.
The Woodstock Union Arena is owned by the local high school.
Vermont Public Radio reports the arena has been running in the red for years. The arena’s board of directors has proposed dipping into the $450,000 endowment.
But the endowment’s trustees and the School Board did not agree that was the best solution. They encouraged discussion about other possibilities.
The School Board’s new arena subcommittee will meet soon with the facility’s management to work on a solution.MORE IN This Just InGeneral Electric plant suspends operations due to water issues; officials suspect water leak - UPDATED 0Rutland City officials said they may have located the mystery water leak after it suddenly got...
