It takes 1-2 weeks of below freezing temperatures before there is enough ice for DPW to measure. All locations were checked this morning. Farley Pond has 8 inches of ice, but all other locations have open edges of water and are well below 6 inches of black ice. Temperatures are expected to be above freezing for the remainder of this week.
Rules posted on signs located at each pond must be followed. Ice is not checked over the weekend or during winter storms and clean-ups, as the DPW staff must work on snow removal on roads and tree repairs. The recommended thickness for ice skating on ponds is six inches of black ice.
