Just a friendly little reminder from the Officers of the Eureka Police Deartment as the start of the new school year approaches about back to school safety tips when traveling in the school zones: • SCHOOL ZONES - When approaching a marked school zone between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., on days when school is in operation and children are present *within proximity of the roadway, a driver must reduce speed to 20 mph, discontinue wireless/cellphone use (unless using a hands-free device that may include the use of a single-sided headset *for drivers age 19 and older), and stop and yield the right of way to any children or adults in the crosswalk area. • Drivers should NOT BLOCK THE CROSSWALK when stopped at a red light or waiting to make a turn. • PASSING - Passing on a two-lane, two-way roadway is NOT allowed when a school bus has stopped to load or discharge passengers. Passing on a two-lane, two-way roadway is NOT allowed in any school zone located in an unincorporated area and in any posted school zone in an incorporated area. • CHILD PASSENGER PROTECTION ACT - Children under the age of 8 years must be secured in an appropriate child restraint system, more commonly called a child safety seat. Child safety seats include infant seats, convertible seats (rear-facing for infants and forward-facing for toddlers) and booster seats that are used with the vehicle lap and shoulder belt system. • Always STOP when directed to do so by a designated crossing guard or police officer. REMEMBER children are the least predictable pedestrians and the most difficult to see. Let's all have a safe and accident free (and tickets too) school year!!! - Eureka Police Department

Have questions about the draining of Eureka Lake? This is a great article to help you better understand why Eureka Lake must be drained. Illinois Department of Natural Resources fisheries biologist Rob Hilsabeck explains in detail the importance of this process so that we may all enjoy our beautiful lake for years and years to come.

Eureka Lake is proud to host the disc golf tournament happening this week August 9-12. This tournament brings a lot of people in to the City of Eureka, so let's show off our beautiful city.

SCAM ALERT: A person claiming to be from the US Department of Treasury has been sending messages via Facebook Messenger wanting them to send iTunes cards, once the person receives the iTunes cards, they will then ask for a larger amount of money in iTunes cards. This is a scam, we are aware of it. Just remember, if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is. Don't be a victim of a scam!!!
