On the evening of Tuesday, October 2, 2018, a major storm dropping more than two inches of rain in a short period of time fell in Fountain Hills and caused flooding and storm debris to flow into streets. Public Works staff and contracted services were out on Tuesday night and early in the morning on Wednesday, October 3 to clear away debris, silt, and rocks from roadways. While all roadways are open and functional at this time, the town and its contractors will be repairing streets and shoulders damaged by the storm. Beginning tomorrow, October 4, 2018 at 7:00 a.m. and continuing until 3 p.m., flaggers will be conducting traffic along McDowell Mountain road while storm damage is cleared.
In addition to the storm debris and damage on streets, the town sustained substantial damage at Golden Eagle Park on the ball fields and the ramadas. As a result, until further notice, the fields, walking paths and shelter areas will be closed to patrons while damage is assessed and cleanup/repairs are attended to. In the meantime, the sand volleyball courts, basketball courts, tennis courts and playground will remain open. For the safety of residents, the town is requesting residents and visitors to Golden Eagle Park to observe and respect the closed areas as staff works diligently to make repairs.
