Watertown, SD -- It’s looking less likely that a new Watertown Ice Arena will be located at the Watertown Mall. That from Watertown Mayor Sarah Caron who says the latest offer by mall officials wasn’t as attractive as she had hoped it would be.
She said the sticking point has been the ownership of the mall parking lot.
The mayor says the construction phase won’t take long once a location is selected for the new arena. She says the building plans are mostly in place, and, although it will be bare bones initially, there are expansion plans built into the new facility should donors come forward with dollars to make it happen.
