BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Bismarck residents hoping to add a second sheet of ice and other amenities to Schaumberg Ice Arena are asking the School Board for half a million dollars so they can reach their $8 million fundraising goal.

The Bismarck Parks and Recreation District pledged $4.5 million to the project, and the community group has raised $2.7 million through private donations.

Expansion leader Chad Wachter tells The Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/1QMh5Io ) that the group faces a Dec. 31 deadline for raising the remaining $800,000.

The park district owns the arena, but Bismarck Public Schools hockey teams use it. Wachter says there’s a big demand for ice time.

School board members haven’t yet dedicated any money to the proposed expansion.
