Elburn leaders concerned about winter pond safety
ELBURN – The village’s ponds have been busy this winter, and some Elburn leaders and residents are concerned about the safety of those who have used the ponds for ice fishing and skating. Recent temperatures have hovered above freezing, and this week’s forecast calls for highs well above 40.
Officials stopped short, however, of turning such concerns into action, opting – at this time – not to post signs of warning.
Village President Dave Anderson introduced the topic at Monday’s Village Board meeting, saying the ponds were “a little bit touchy” and pointing out that some ponds “we own, and by we, I mean taxpayers.” Those who have observed the ponds said the ice is not thick because there has not been a long stretch of below-freezing temperatures.
