Dec hockey opportunity?

Bellevue has a chance to become home to a dek hockey rink at Memorial Park, the $267,000 cost paid completely by the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation.

Although there is no definite decision on the opportunity, Mayor Emily Marburger said that the borough had been contacted by state Sen. Wayne Fontana to gauge Bellevue’s interest.

Director of Administrative Services Ron Borczyk said the rink, if built, likely would occupy the gravel lot along Bellevue Road, adjacent to the baseball field and the dog park.

Although the borough could incur some costs, such as supplying electricity to the area, the rink would be maintained by the foundation, which also would supply equipment.
