"The ice really damaged the piers and docks," said Rich Rollins of Rollins Aquatics. "The ice bent the posts in half."

Technicians removed dock posts that were S-shaped as they came out of the water due to ice that was more than two-feet thick on the lake this past year.

They hope for the docks to be open on May 1.
