Dear Billy T and Somerville News Weekly Speakup Line,
Please do an article regarding the abrupt closing of the of the concession stand and the skate shop within the Veterans Ice Rink. This once leased space is now vacant ( no rental income) .
The word is the mayor was behind the Recreation Dept to make the proposed lease difficult for the owner to sustain the food menu by adding Recreation Dept mandatory “health food” to the menu.
Also public skating times were not consistent scheduled from week to week due to the schedule of the Stars Hockey program .
The Stars Hockey program appears to run the schedule of the rink.
Also was the mayor attempting to separate himself from the name of the past concession owner?
