Mayoral statement: TPA Pool closed for the season

In light of the recent drowning at the TPA Pool this week, by executive order, I have directed the pool will be closed for the remainder of the summer, effective today. We are taking this step out of respect to the family involved in the tragedy and to allow Frankfort police to continue their thorough investigation to help assure the safety of all who use the pool in the future.

On behalf of the entire community, we extend our deepest sympathy to the family, loved ones and friends of Adrian Alanis. I ask all of my fellow residents to join with me in keeping Adrian’s family in your thoughts and prayers during this heartbreaking and painful time.

In the wake of this tragedy, a comprehensive review of pool operations is being implemented, including reinforced safety measures, additional training for all lifeguards and pool staff and a review of the working mechanisms of the pool itself. These steps are being undertaken to help ensure the safe operation of the TPA Pool in the future and the safety and enjoyment of all who visit this recreational facility.

— Mayor Chris McBarnes
