Pelham council hears ice arena proposal

The city of Pelham says it has poured millions of dollars into it's ice area, and now it might let someone else do the same.

The city council heard a proposal from Sportsplex of America Monday night.

Sportsplex says it is ready to invest $4 Million for the arena - that would include renovations so it could be used for an expansion of ice sports. Sportsplex is thinking beyond Pelham - it wants to make the facility a hub for ice sports in the southeast.

Recently elected Pelham city council members also attended the work session so they can get up to speed on the ice area before they take office.
