The following conditions are examples of closure conditions: Very cold temperatures with excessively cold wind chills. (Generally a closure in this example would be later in the evening or possibly a weekday night – not mornings where conditions are likely to improve or the warming house may be expected to be used more as during Christmas vacation or on weekends.) Temperatures well above freezing. (Generally a closure in this example would occur when there is water standing over half the rink and temperatures are not expected to drop. Remember, when the sun goes down temperatures typically fall below freezing, so start your regular shift at the regular start time if it is expected to extend into the evening.) The Parks/Utilities Supervisor or Public Works Lead Person will determine if rinks are to be closed. Rink Reservations –must be done in person on-site with the warming house attendant. Only the west hockey rink (at both Central and Ramsey Elementary) may be reserved by groups or individuals to exclude the general public. The west rink may not be scheduled more than three events in advance and there is a two-hour maximum time limit. The rink attendant will assist with scheduling to help ensure equitable distribution of ice times. In the event of a scheduling conflict, the rink attendant will record both parties’ names, addresses, and telephone numbers (both home and work). This information will be forwarded to the Parks/Utilities Supervisor or Lead Person who will contact the individuals the first available business day to resolve the scheduling conflict. A calendar will be posted in the warming houses for scheduling only. In no case will the east hockey rink or the pleasure rink be reserved to exclude the general public. Please remember your primary job is to insure the safety of everyone on the premises, in addition to enforcing the rules and policies.
