CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (KWWL) -- The City of Cedar Falls and Mayor Rob Green say steps are being taken to address what the mayor calls "many intimidating and other aggressive behaviors toward other patrons and city staff, and several mass altercations."

The City sent out a statement Thursday reminding residents of the zero-tolerance policy against "profanity, disrespectful actions toward staff, thefts, and violence at The Falls." The City says if customers engage in these actions, they'll be asked to leave and won't be allowed to return.

In a post on Facebook, Mayor Green said he has received "disturbing reports about The Falls Aquatic Center these past several days," adding "This is completely unacceptable, and I will not tolerate it." Green says he is working with the Department of Public Safety, the Parks Division and the Parks & Recreation Commission to prevent further disturbances so everyone can enjoy The Falls.

Green even paid a visit himself to The Falls on Thursday night to talk with customers.

The City says there will be an increased police presence from Public Safety on-site as well as additional supervisory staff. The City adds that additional actions may be considered if necessary. Green says anyone with questions or concerns can reach out to him by emailing mayor@cedarfalls.com.
