Ice Skating Prohibition Will Come to Vote in Bloomingdale This Week
Council could formally ban skating, sledding and walking on icy borough ponds Tuesday.
During the council's regular meeting, members will be asked to vote on a measure to ban the activities on the borough's two ponds, Bogue Pond and Oakwood Lake. Already, according to Mayor Jonathan Dunleavy, such activities are not monitored on the ponds and police officers have asked people to refrain from entering the ice for safety reasons when they have seen them.
If the ordinance is passed, signs explaining that skating and sledding would be at the participants' risk would be hung near the ponds.
The public hearing will be held Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Bloomingdale Borough Hall on Hamburg Turnpike.
