The Springdale Splash Pad is open everyday from 10 am to 8 pm! Also, just a reminder, there is no charge and although we do welcome them, we do not reserve park shelters for parties or other events.
I want to say a huge thank you to the staff, volunteers and my fellow Council Members for their hard work in planning and hosting Springdale Summerfest and Golf Cart Parade. I’m sorry I was unable to attend the event as I was out of town at a mayor’s conference. The event was a major success, with estimates of 400+ individuals in attendance! We are so excited to make this an annual event that we are already planning for next year! We have received an outpouring of positive feedback from our residents and residents from other towns who came out to enjoy Springdale. What a great way to showcase our Town and our values!
The park and splash pad have been full of happy children and families! We are so excited that everyone is able to enjoy free family fun right here in Springdale! Parking for the splash pad is designated on Lee Circle, right in front of the park fence. Signs have been posted for overflow parking that is available at the old Jewelry Warehouse building right beside Town Hall. Please refrain from parking behind Town Hall, in front of the Police Department.
With summer break in full swing and the splash pad running daily, we always see an influx of parties and big groups in our park. While we welcome them, we ask that you be courteous and clean up the mess you bring with you. We are very proud of our park and always welcome the fun but we are seeing more and more trash left behind. Please help us keep Springdale Park enjoyable for everyone.
With temperatures reaching the 90’s, the risk of heat related illnesses is increasing. Please be aware that while no one is exempt from the impact of heat related illnesses, the elderly, young children and disabled individuals are at an increased risk of being affected. As a community, let’s keep an eye out for the health and safety of our family, friends and neighbors.
Tickets for the CMRTA’S COMET bus are available for purchase at Town Hall as well as an informational pamphlet that outlines the routes and services of the COMET.
During the Tuesday, July 2nd town council meeting, Chief of Police Andrew “Bear” Richbourg presented promotions and recognitions for the employees within his department. The department’s newest Police Officer, Officer Wilhelm, was sworn-in during the ceremony as well. Officer Wilhelm has seven years of experience in law enforcement. Sergeant Manuel, who has five years of law enforcement experience, was promoted to the rank of Captain. Officer Sharpe, who has seven years of experience in law enforcement, was promoted to the rank of Investigator. Patrolman First Class Gantt, who has three years of experience in law enforcement, was promoted to the rank of Corporal. Officer Harrelson, who has six years of law enforcement experience, was recognized for taking on the additional role of Victim Advocate. Civilian employee, Ms. Freedman, was recognized for taking on the additional role of Public Information Officer. Chief Richbourg stated that it speaks volumes of the capacity of his department to be able to promote from within. I agree with Chief Richbourg, we are proud of all of our law enforcement personnel and the hard work they put in each day to ensure and maintain the safety of the residents, property and interests of the Town of Springdale.
I HOPE EVERYONE HAD A SAFE AND HAPPY HOLIDAY!
Mayor Michael Bishop
