White Bluff police and parks department officials are warning skaters about the requirements for helmets and pads at the new White Bluff Skate Park, but repeat offenders could be cited into court. At last week’s meeting, council members expressed concerns over seeing skaters not wearing helmets and the required knee and elbow pads at the park recently opened next door to the community center. Liability over the very same concerns prompted the Burns Board of Commissioners to close that town’s skate park and donate the equipment to White Bluff earlier this year. Signage at the park states the safety equipment requirements and Mayor Linda Hayes said police officers and other town officials are keeping an eye on the park to make sure skaters are following the rules. Town attorney Stan Reynolds told the council last week that repeat offenders can be cited into juvenile court for a delinquent act if they are under the age of 18. Hayes said local officials would continue to watch the park. Hayes previously said a grand opening celebration for the new skate park is being planned for July 20.
