The deputy chief of police and his Spring Splash task force in Whitewater, Wisconsin ended the month of May event-free due to Coronavirus.
Ordinance violations found in the 2019 Whitewater Police Blotter Report totaled over 90 pages ranging from throwing a football over the street to felony convictions. One year later, the statewide stay-at-home order forced the event to go virtual on Facebook. Deputy Chief Dan Meyer opened the books during an interview to unveil the 2019 Spring Splash aftermath expressing concerns for his community.
The Whitewater community pays for the aftermath when Spring Splash comes to town. Spring Splashers in 2020 went virtual saving the city from another year of a burnt-out task force who stayed at home instead. The city of Whitewater will now have a surplus going into 2021 due to the COVID-19 quarantine.
