MASSENA CITY COUNCIL SETS PARK HOURS
(Massena) The Massena City Council is taking a proactive approach to vandalism in their city park. Monday night the Council passed the third and final reading of an ordinance setting park hours from 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
Massena Mayor Mike Cormack says the council has been concerned with the amount of vandalism that has occurred during the overnight hours.
“We hope the set hours will raise suspicion and give law enforcement a reason to question who is there and what they are doing,” said Cormack. “We know 99-percent of the time there is not a problem, but obviously that 1-percent can cause a problem where ever you’re at.”
The new park hours will go into effect immediately.
