Should Amherst privatize its Northtown Center ice rinks complex or expand it?

The four ice rinks of Northtown Center at Amherst either lose hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, or break even.

The facility's operating costs are covered by revenue, mainly from renting out ice time to hockey teams.

But it runs a deficit of about $800,000 due to debt service payments from when the complex was built in 1998 on Maple Road near the University at Buffalo.
