    A suggestion —–there must be someone at your station to follow up on the problems on the 500 block of Olney in the park. Walk across the top of the park and see the damage for yourselves. Come around on Sundays or most evenings about 4:00 to 6:00 and watch the ATV’s deliberately destroying the park. Maybe you can get the mayor or police do do something to save the park.

    Hopefully the parents or adults involved in this will be held responsible. Perhaps the police should come when things like this are reported at 911. In our neighborhood they NEVER come out to deal with such problems. At this very moment ATV’s are racing up and down Olney Ave and in the park at speeds of about 45 mph. It goes on in the park every day and the police refuse to do anything about it. Mr. Mayor how about some action in this neighborhood. %00 block of E. Olney AVenue on the street and in the park
