Warning issued about river ice
JANUARY 4, 2018
It was reported earlier to a neighboring police department that kids had been walking out onto the ice on the river. The ice on the river is not safe to walk on. There will be places that the ice is different thicknesses and may have a gap between the ice and the flowing water underneath. If you fall through there is a good chance that emergency services will not be able to get to you. Yesterday there was a few open water holes on the river and today they had a thin layer of ice that was covered with snow. Please do not attempt to walk onto the ice.
