Mt. Greenwood Park Issues, Anyone?

Two posts were made regarding Mt. Greenwood Park issues. Does anyone know who the residents would speak to? Can a meeting to discuss the issues surrounding the park be scheduled with Rugai or the head of Mt. Greenwood Park? Obviously there are issues. We know the City is broke.

This past summer there were issues with vandalism in the new playground. The playground was full at the time. Why weren't the police called immediately by the moms and dad's there at the time? Because the kids vandalizing the playground were neighborhood kids? We need to step up and protect what is ours. Residents of Mt. Greenwood fought hard and many people raised tons of money to get that park the way it is.

I would like to know why park rules are not enforced in Mt. greenwood park. People from all over bring their dogs to crap in our park, even in the new ball fields because the police in their suburban parks enforce the law. They come here, no leash, bait the squirrels, and get joy watching their dogs try to kill them. enough is enough.

*Dogs should be leashed at all times. If you see this kind of thing going on, call the police. After a few tickets, these people should learn that this kind of behavior is UNACCEPTABLE.

Why won't they put a snow fence up in Mt. Greenwood park like they did years ago? Us that live across from the park are chest deep in snow and cannot get out of our driveways because of drifting snow. Called the aldermans office and they said they can't afford it. What a joke.
