"Everything seems to be in good shape, except the liner," said Village Engineer Tim Baker, adding that since Liverpool's rink was much larger than Baldwinsville's, he might be able to salvage a portion of the liner for the village rink. Should it be unsalvageable, Baker estimated a cost of $729 for a 49 x 78-foot liner, which would come out of the seasonal parks budget. It would be the only out of pocket cost. Department of Public Works employees would build and maintain the rink in their spare time and it would be run by a committee of volunteers.
Saraceni said he hoped to stock the shed with used ice skates that would be available for all residents to use at no cost. To do so, he would like to hold a used ice skate drive.
The village of Baldwinsville will hold a public hearing regarding the village budget at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 8. The village budget year runs from March 1, 2009 to Feb. 28, 2010.
