MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont group is trying to put an outdoor ice rink on the front lawn of the statehouse in Montpelier.

Vermont Public Radio reports (https://bit.ly/200riUY ) Montpelier Alive’s Put a Rink on it committee is seeking permission from the state Department of Buildings and General Services.

The agency requires a $10,000 line of credit to be used if there’s any damage to state property. Committee members say they’re trying to raise money to meet that condition.

Another condition requires a trained adult attendant to be at the rink during all operating hours. Organizers say it will take time to screen and train the attendants.

The committee is hoping to get approval from the department for the 2016-2017 winter season.
