(ABC 6 News) -- Changes could be coming for a popular sports venue in Kasson.

The Dodge County Ice Arena is one of the few places in the area that keeps their sheet of ice year round.

But county and city officials are exploring new ways to utilize the space, which could include holding county fair activities inside the arena.

A new committee is being formed to figure out the best use of the space.

"We're still trying to figure out a way that it could be used by the fair without interrupting our service to the ice people for an extended period of time," Kasson City Administrator Randy Lenth said.

The arena is owned by the county but managed by the city.  The new committee will meet every month to develop new plans.
