Safety Tips for Pokemon Go Enthusiasts

Many of you have heard of Pokémon Go, but for those who have not, it is a type of Geo Caching game where you find and capture Pokémon characters at various locations.

If you use this app (or other similar apps) or have children that do we encourage you to do the following:

  1. Watch out for your surroundings: Look up and be aware of who is around you besides Pokemon
  2. Parents limit places kids can go: Set boundaries to avoid stranger danger for kids unattended
  3. Don’t Pokemon Go and drive: Catching Pikachu isn’t worth crashing
  4. Tell people where you’re going if it is somewhere you’ve never been
  5. Don’t trespass: People might call the police if you enter private property and your Pokemon can’t help you
  6. Remember to follow rules in public places such as Eureka City Parks.  Parks open at dawn. (Except Kircher Park which opens at 7:00 a.m.) All Parks close at dusk (except West Frisco which closes at 2:00 a.m.) Failing to follow these rules could result in a summons as well as putting your safety at risk.

CodeRED Emergency Notification System

The CodeRED emergency notification system is a communication service available for emergency notifications such as a missing child, evacuation, bomb threat, hostage situation, natural disaster, terrorism threat, chemical spill or other emergency incidents where rapid and accurate notification is essential for safety, plus severe weather alerts if you so choose.  CodeRED can employ mapping capable of geographic targeting of calls, coupled with a telephone calling system capable of delivering a pre-recorded message at a rate of up to 60,000 calls per hour.  CodeRED can reach Eureka residents by residential phone, business phone or cell phone.  The system will make three (3) attempts to contact citizens and will leave messages in voicemail and on answering machines.  The system can also send e-mails if desired.

The only way to ensure that your information is entered into the CodeRED system is to sign up for the notifications. To include your information in the CodeRED system, visit the link below.  You will be asked to provide your phone number and home address so that notifications made only to selected neighborhoods will be accurate. Again, your contact information will only be used for emergency notification purposes.

Submit your code red notification information.

Mosquito Control

  • At least once a week, drain water from garbage cans, buckets, toys, flowerpots, wading pools, pet dishes and other objects that collect water.
  • Change water in birdbaths at least once a week.
  • Keep gutters cleaned out, and repair any tears in door and window screens.
  • Wear long-sleeved shirts, long pants and light colors outdoors.
  • Spray clothing with repellents containing DEET or picaridin, making sure to follow the directions on the label.
  • Look for products containing the active ingredient methoprene or Bti (Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis) to place in birdbaths or ponds, to prevent mosquitoes from developing.

Reporting Issues with Weeds & Vegetation

All weeds or vegetation which have attained a height of 12 inches or more, growing or existing upon land within the City, with the exception of land used for farming or gardening purposes, are considered a public nuisance and are prohibited.  Whenever private property abuts a public right-of-way or easement which consists of a tree, lawn or grassy area between the private property line and the edge of the street pavement, landowners are responsible for maintaining the grassy area up to the edge of the street pavement, as noted in Ordinance No. 993.

To report weed violations, call the Weed Violation Line at 938-5233 (Ext. 120) or email Barb Griffin.

From the Mayor’s Desk

Dear Friends and Neighbors:
Summer is a great time to enjoy outdoor plans with our families, friends and community.  Our many warm weather events and facilities are here for our residents and visitors to utilize and enjoy.  Our Fourth of July Celebration, Concerts on Central, Eureka Days and other events promise to promote an active and exciting summer.  Music, food and family enjoyment will be a primary theme for our Parks Department, organizations and businesses.
Please feel free to invite friends and relatives to our sponsored activities or hold your own picnic or gathering in one of our many parks.  Adjacent areas such as Route 66 Park, Rockwood Reservation and Greensfelder offer residents and visitors unique nature experiences that few communities are able to provide.  Take advantage of the many events mentioned in this newsletter.  Additional program and facility information can be found on our website.  We will keep you updated on new events and projects planned or underway.  Above all, enjoy a safe and relaxing summer season.

Sincerely,
