Warming houses and rinks are closed

Although the city appreciates and values resident’s eagerness, the city asks that people still stay off the ice until the city opens the rinks and warming houses. Great progress was made this week flooding. Next week, we will be flooding at night and during the day. With the warmer temps in the forecast, it’s important not to skate on the ice because it could cause damage that will further delay opening of the rinks and warming houses. Thanks for the cooperation!
