Bemidji Beat: BREC Zamboni approved
The Bemidji City Council last night voted 5-1 to award a bid for an ice resurfacer for the Bemidji Regional Event Center. Frank J. Zamboni & Co. had the low bid of two received at $85,780.18. (The other bid was from Becker Arena Products, Inc. for $98,970.) Bemidji City Councilor Ron Johnson noted that the existing ice resurfacer at the John Glas Fieldhouse, where the Beavers now play, is electric while the new Zamboni will be propane-powered. He wondered whether that would create an issue if the old machine would be used as a backup. Click here to read the Bemidji Beat blog.
