UPDATE: Main Street ice rink extension on hold?

January 3, 2013 

City parks and recreation officials want Main Street Ice — the man-made ice skating rink in downtown Columbia — to remain open for two more weeks, but city council approval is needed.

The ice rink is supposed to close on Sunday. Parks and recreation staff have placed an item on Tuesday's City Council agenda to extended the ice rink's stay until Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Jan. 21.

The city sent out a press release earlier today announcing the extension of the ice rink's stay.

The State is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
