Reminder: dogs should remain on leash when near bodies of water, to protect them and owners from falling through thin ice!
The DPW was able to check ice depths, today. All ponds have had a dramatic decrease in depth with the recent days of above freezing temperatures, and most have open edges of water and no pond has 6 inches of black ice at this time. It is recommended that skaters wait for the return of 6 or more inches of ice before skating.
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.
