The city of Watertown is close to signing two contracts with local clubs, securing business at the municipal ice arena.
That's happening while city officials wait for final details that would bring the Watertown Wolves hockey team back for another year.
The Watertown Minor Hockey Association and the Watertown Figure Skating Association are both inking three-year deals instead of the usual one-year contracts.
Rates have gone up for both, but the rates stay the same for the three years of the contracts.
The hockey club will pay a yearly flat fee of $46,000. The figure skating club will pay $80 an hour.
City council members will decide whether to approve the deals when they meet Monday night.
As for the Wolves hockey team, city officials are waiting for a couple of details from the team's ownership, but say they are in the final stages of putting a together a one-year deal.
That contract will go in front of the city council in August.
