Late last year Benson’s CNH gave the City of Benson notice that it would be ending its lease for the northern portion of the city-owned civic center.
That lease has provided $26,000 in revenue annually that has been used to improve the south portion of the building that houses the indoor skating rink used for the Benson Public Schools hockey program. In recent years, the funds have helped build locker rooms and a heated viewing area as well as pay for ongoing repairs.
With the lease expected to end early this year, the city and Benson schools had started a conversation about the potential uses of the space by the school district. Some businesses in the community had also expressed an interest in the space.
