Good Afternoon, I wanted to give the community a update from the weather event we had over the past several days, first of all the heavy rain is over and water is receding, that being said unofficial reports show Centerton had 8.65 inches of rain. This was a major event and the city overall did very well. Also I am happy to report that all roads in Centerton are open.

That being said I want to take a minute and thanks a large number of folks who worked hard and behind the scenes to keep our community safe. First I want to thank our Chief Building Official Robert Coffelt, he contacted all of the developers and reminded them of the upcoming event and to make sure they secured their supplies, next I want to commend our Code Enforcement Officer, Anthony Martinez he continued to make sure the builders had all things in place to prevent runoff, and other issues, and worked hand in hand with Robert.

Next I want to thank Cody Harper and the Centerton Police Department on continuously monitoring of our roads and keeping the citizens safe and responding the number of calls we had due to high water. The police also constantly monitored the water levels and contacted us to get roads closed.

Next hats off to Delton Bush and the Centerton Fire Department for the good job they did in the multiple swift water rescues they responded to not only in Centerton, but multiple communities within Benton County.

Finally I want to say thank you to Ricky Hudson and his crew for thier hard work not only putting out signage to close our roads, but also removing down trees and making repairs to keep our roads clear. I want to also say Rick is actually on vacation in Georgia, and he stayed in contact with me and his crew to make sure the citizens were safe.

We are blessed to have a excellent work force in our community and I want to thank ALL of our employees working for our great city for a Job Well Done..!!

Thanks Mayor Bill

Hi Gang wanted to give everyone a update on our current situation in Centerton, first of all Carroll Electric is reporting 54 customers without power and they are aware and have several customers out in the area and are aware of the outage and will restore as soon as possible.

Current road closures are South Main Street from Fish Hatchery to Holloway and also Brookside Drive is closed. We are expecting another round of heavy rain around midnight, then we will get light rain after that and it all should come to a end around 9am.

There is a lot of high water in other areas so please again "Don't Drown and Turn Around" and let's all be safe.

Please continue to stay tuned to local media for updates.

The CFD has already responded to multiple swift water events today. Please do NOT drive through bodies of water, as it only takes a few inches to sweep a vehicle off the road. Remember: Turn around, don't drown!
