Mayor Tim Haak's Monthly Update   
 
Summer has arrived and we are all feeling it! If you plan on spending a majority of your time in Zionsville this summer, here are some of my favorite things to do.

Mayor Haak's Summer Bucket List
  1. Go fishing at Elm Street Green. Did you know that Eagle Creek is great for fishing? Whether you are an expert angler or would like to teach your kids how to fish, Eagle Creek is the perfect destination. Stop by Moving Water Outfitters for all the scoop.
  2. Kayak on Eagle Creek. Have you tried kayaking? The town has a kayak launch at Elm Street Green. You can kayak as far as you'd like or go all the way to Eagle Creek Reservoir.
  3. Bike to downtown Zionsville and treat yourself. One of my family favorites is grabbing our bikes after dinner and biking downtown for dessert. Dairy Queen, Bub's and The Scoop are a few family favorites.
  4. Watch fireworks at Lions Park 4th of July Celebration. The Zionsville Lions Club puts on an amazing fireworks display at Lions Park each year. It's not uncommon to have families travel from Carmel and Indianapolis to watch this amazing show and celebrate Independence Day.
  5. Attend an event at ZNC. Check out the many free activities at Zion Nature Center. There are programs for all ages. My kids have always loved looking at the animals up close.
 
 
Have a great summer and a safe 4th of July. 
 
Thanks for your time, 
 
Tim Haak 
Zionsville Mayor

Attention Weather Geeks!

 
The Town of Zionsville has installed two new weather monitoring stations. Through these stations, users can access current weather conditions, archived weather conditions, radar and satellite and upcoming forecasts. Users can also access lifestyle forecasts, including anything from driving conditions to watering needs. Another helpful feature is the nearby lightning reader, which could help determine if a local event needs to be moved indoors for safety.

The two weather stations upload current weather data to the WeatherSTEM Weather Network each minute of the day.

ZPD's New Defibrillators


Thanks to a gift from the Zionsville Fire Department, Zionsville Police Department officers will be able to assist those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. Newly hired ZPD officers will now have an additional five automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to use in each of their vehicles.
 
Revenue generated from the CPR classes offered by ZFD was used to purchase five new AEDs for ZPD. Now all ZPD vehicles will be equipped with AEDs.

Sewer Rehabilitation Project - Part I
Pending weather, in the coming weeks, the Zionsville Wastewater Department will begin the 2019 Sewer Rehabilitation Project Part I on Academy Drive. This is part of the Town's current 10-Year Sewer Rehabilitation Program for 2013 - 2022. The sewer main located at Academy Drive and Sixth Street is undersized, poorly sloped and without a manhole structure and is in need of maintenance and cleaning.

Part II of this project will include replacing an alley sewer main between Second and Third Streets and Hawthorne and Oak Streets.

As available, more information will be posted on the Town's website.
