MOUNT OLIVE - Mount Olive residents want increased security to prevent future tragedies like the drowning deaths of two teens this week.
Police say Nick Cianciotto and Clyde Schimanski III, both 15, drowned in Budd Lake Monday night. The pair fell through thin ice.
Many are calling for increased patrols to keep kids off of the thin ice. Mount Olive Mayor Rob Greenbaum says policing the banks of the lake would be challenging because the land is privately owned.
Greenbaum says the town is exploring other options, like educating children about the dangers of walking on the ice.
