LONGMONT — The Longmont Ice Pavilion is opening late after a vandal caused $20,000 in damage by putting "ice melt" on the ice.

The Times-Call reports that the damage was spotted Monday, a day before the rink was due to open (http://bit.ly/1e8fOap ).

Repairs started Friday. Ice Pavilion manager Mark Mann says it will take five or six days to repair the surface.

Longmont Police are investigating.

It's the second time in 12 months that the ice pavilion has been vandalized. In November 2012, someone broke through a fence and kicked off a pressure gauge on the rink's machinery. That damage caused the rink to lose about seven barrels of glycol, the material that keeps the ice frozen.

A suspect was considered in the 2012 incident, but never arrested.
