Lake View, Iowa -- Swimmers at Crescent Beach on Black Hawk Lake will notice something missing this season. Earlier this week the Lake View City Council decided against installing the floating platform rafts which swimmers used for recreation just off the beach. Due to a combination of low water levels and no lifeguards on patrol the council felt conditions were unsafe for installing the rafts. City Clerk, Scott Peterson says that if water levels do rise to levels deemed safe for the recreational platform rafts to be used the city council will revisit the issue. For now, however, the rafts will remained beached.
