Snowmobilers and those who ice fish on the bay of Green Bay should be prepared for possible ice cutting this weekend. A U.S. Coast Guard Cutter is being dispatched to break ice between January 26th and January 29th to allow ships to drop off and pick up needed commodities in Green Bay. Brown County Port and Resource Recovery Director Dean Haen says such shipments are coming just after the shipping season ended.
The U.S. Coast Guard recommends all recreational ice users plan their activities carefully, use caution on the ice, and stay away from shipping channels. DoorCountyDailyNews.com and the radio stations will bring you updates on waterway closures.
