Skateboard park, climbing wall safe, mayor says
  CELINA - Celina Mayor Jeff Hazel said the Celina Skateboard Park as well as the climbing wall and diving boards at Bryson Memorial Pool are all safe to use.
At the regular council meeting on Monday night, Hazel said the city's insurance company recently sent a specialist to Celina to inspect the recreational apparatuses.
All items were deemed safe and insurable.
"He looked at everything again personally and said there was nothing wrong with them," Hazel said. "They are safe."
The skateboard park was temporarily closed last month after someone from the public claimed it was unsafe.
"Once somebody says its unsafe, we have to do due diligence; we have to close it down until we prove otherwise," Hazel said. "And so that's what we did."
Hazel also dispelled a rumor that the city attempts to repair its diving boards at the pool.
"We never repair diving boards," he said. "They are always replaced. Safety is number one."
In other news on Monday, council members,
• passed first reading of an ordinance authorizing safety service director Tom Hitchcock to enter into an agreement for mutual aid with the Mercer County Emergency Volunteers.
• passed second reading of an ordinance authorizing Hazel and fire chief Doug Wolters to enter into an agreement for automatic mutual aid with Montezuma Fire Department.
