Aldermen clarify activities allowed in town in fight against COVID-19

The Crystal Springs mayor and board of aldermen held their monthly meeting last week, and the fight against COVID-19 was a major part of the discussion. Aldermen voted to approve a second executive order requiring social distancing, prohibiting gatherings of 10 or more people, and implementing an 11 p.m. until 5 a.m. curfew. Alderman Warren Thornton sought to clarify activities that are allowed on city property. After a lengthy discussion, Mayor Sally Garland, with the concurrence of aldermen, listed tennis, disc golf, use of walking trails, and use of the splash pad as approved activities. Basketball courts are closed. The splash pad is to be used by only one family at a time, and disc golf is to be conducted with proper social distancing. Police will issue warnings to those violating the rules and if offenders do not comply, citations may be issued that can result in fines of $300 and six months in jail.
