Through hard work by Representative Cathy Munoz and friends in the Legislature, Juneau is poised to receive a new skating rink in the Mendenhall Valley. Now, the buzz around town is whether our community needs and can afford another rink.
Juneau, with 30,000+ residents, should move forward with this opportunity. The new Valley rink will be heavily used and will not be built with CBJ sales or property taxes. Managed right, the new rink will not require a local government subsidy to operate.
