PRESS RELEASE

On Tuesday, February 6, 2024, the Centerville City Council heard from Chief Cedric Duncan about the need to revise the City’s curfew ordinance for persons under the age of 18. Chief Duncan requested that the Council amend the curfew ordinance by tightening restrictions for juveniles to be out without an adult at night. Currently, the ordinance allows juveniles under the age of 18 to be out without parent supervision Sunday through Thursday until 11:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday night until 12:00 a.m. Chief Duncan asked the Council to change the curfew time to 10:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. the following day seven days per week (Sunday through Saturday). Chief Duncan also explained that parents/adult guardians of juvenile curfew violators may be cited and required to appear in the City’s Municipal Court. Conviction under the City’s Code of Ordinance can result in a fine of up to $1,000.00. There has been an ongoing problem with juveniles loitering and causing disturbances in the area around the Galleria movie theaters for some time. Amending the ordinance and holding the juvenile and parental offenders accountable is an effort to help prevent violence such as the tragic events of Saturday evening, February 3, 2024.

Following Chief Duncan’s presentation, the Mayor and Council voted unanimously to amend the ordinance as requested. Chief Duncan closed his remarks by thanking the Mayor and Council for supporting the changes and stating that “he hopes that the new language sends a message to parents/guardians to stop dropping their children off at the theater and other venues and not supervising their activities nor picking them up picking them up promptly.”

The new language of City Ordinance Sections 36-134-125 became effective immediately and states:

Sec. 36-134. - Hours; prohibited conduct.

(a) It shall be unlawful for any person under the age of 18 years to walk, loiter, idle, wander, stroll or play or to be present in or upon the public streets, highways, roads, alleys, parks, playgrounds or other grounds, public places and public buildings, places of amusement and entertainment, vacant lots or other such places on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday of every week between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. of the following day, official city time, provided, however, that the provisions of this section do not apply to a minor accompanied by his parent or other adult person having the care and custody of the minor at that time, or where the minor is upon an emergency errand or legitimate business directed in writing, dated and signed by his parents, guardian or adult person having custody of the minor.

(b) Any minor under the age of 18 years who shall do any of the acts prohibited by subsection (a) of this section shall, upon request, furnish to the officers his name and address and that of his parents or guardian or person having custody and care of such minor and then be directed by any officer of the police department to return to his dwelling place or residence. Upon the failure or refusal of such minor to return forthwith, he shall be turned over to the appropriate court for disposition.

Sec. 36-135. - Parental responsibility.

(a) It shall be unlawful for the parent, guardian or other adult person having the care and custody of a minor under the age of 18 years to allow, permit, make possible, tolerate or condone such minor to walk, loiter, idle, wander, stroll, play or to be present in or upon the public streets, highways, roads, alleys, parks, playgrounds or other grounds, public places and public buildings, places of amusement and entertainment, vacant lots or other unsupervised places on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday of every week between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. of the following day, official city time.

(b) The parent or guardian or person having the care and custody of a minor under the age of 18 years, which minor shall have failed to return forthwith to his dwelling place or residence after having been requested to do so by an officer of the police department, shall, upon proof that such parent or guardian or person having custody or care of the minor has allowed, permitted, made possible, tolerated or condoned the minor’s doing of any of the acts prohibited to minors by this section, be deemed guilty of and, upon conviction thereof be guilty of an offense and punished as provided in Section 1-15.

Eagle Springs Pool Bad Weather Policy

EAGLE SPRINGS POOL
BAD WEATHER POLICY

Everyone out of the pool! That's the last thing you want to hear when you're taking a dip in the outdoor pool.  Swimming is serious fun. So is safety. That’s why we want to remind you of our outdoor pool weather policies.  

When inclement weather is imminent and pool is open, our staff monitors incoming threatening storms very closely. Evacuation of the pool complex is required when audible thunder or visible lightning is observed or when lightning gets to ten miles distant. The pool must remain closed for 30 minutes after the last observed thunder or lightning before resuming swimming pool activities.

Following national guidelines regarding lightning and pool safety, both outdoor and indoor pools must be cleared during a lightning and thunderstorms.  That means all pools remain closed for 30 minutes after the last clap of thunder.  The pool enclosure must be evacuated to wait out the storm, sheltered areas are not considered safe. The reason for the pool evacuations is because lightning is unpredictable and when it is in the area it can travel large distances to meet conductors such as large bodies of water like pools.

LIGHTNING FACTS · Lightning kills more people in the U.S. than hurricanes and tornados combined. · The average storm is 6 - 10 miles wide and moves at 25 MPH. · 13 percent of all lightning incidents involve swimming, boating, or fishing. · Thunder is usually heard up to 12 miles from a lightning strike. In other words, if you can hear thunder, you’re in danger of lightning. · Lightning strikes can reach up to 10 miles.

If a threat of lightning is observed during operating hours, causing unsafe weather conditions, the pool will be cleared and closed. Staff will remain at the pool and attempt to reopen the facility as soon as possible. If it is not feasible to open after ONE HOUR the pool will remain closed for the day.

If there is severe inclement weather at the time of our scheduled daily opening (10 AM),  the pool will remain closed. If the severe weather has COMPLETELY CLEARED and no further severe weather forecasted by 2 PM, the pool will open at that time. If the pool closes any time after 6 PM, it will remain closed for the day.

There is another type of temporary pool closure tied to inclement weather which is when rain shower makes it impossible to clearly see the pool bottom. The pool deck will be closed and pool users may take shelter under cover and remain in the pool area. This kind of temporary closure comes and goes a lot quicker than thunder and lightning protocol because once the rain subsides and the pool bottom is visible the pool opens.

In some cases we may need to retreat the pool after excessive rainfall

As rain runoff collects on the pool deck, it can start to filter into the pool, carrying any outdoor contaminants along with it, the precisely calculated chemical concentrations of the pool can be thrown out of balance. Rainwater also affects the specific chemical gradients of the following:  pH levels, alkaline levels, calcium hardness, and chlorine levels.

Even though such imbalances are nearly impossible to detect with the naked eye, they could result in unanticipated adverse health effects. Obviously, this is a complication that both swimmers and lifeguards wish to avoid, which is why the pool may need to shut down for a period after rain for treatment.

Please follow all Lifeguards instructions in the event of bad weather!!

Fishing in Eagle Springs

Fishing in Eagle Springs

In Eagle Springs we have a lot of opinions on fishing in the lakes or ponds. The water that is surrounded by homes is on private property. The other two bodies of water are posted “No Fishing and No Swimming.” As you may have noticed we have two fountains down right now for expensive repairs. Both pump failures were caused by fishing line sucked in and wrapped around the rotating mechanisms.

I just wanted you to be aware of where part of our budget goes for repairs that could be avoided.
