Funding To Help Curb Vandalism, Other Issues In County Parks.
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Source: Media Advisory Verbatim)— Palm Beach County Vice Mayor Weinroth announced the Board of County Commissioners has unanimously approved a $251,000 allocation for increased presence of Park Rangers in county parks due to an increase in vandalism, property damage and ordinance violations within the parks after hours.
“While the majority of these problems are happening after hours, this needs to be addressed,” said Weinroth.
“Preserving the quality of our parks is a priority and keeping everyone safe is even more important,” he added.
This increased ranger patrol will endure a 24-hour presence within the park system to deter unwelcome and prohibited conduct or activity.
Park rangers provide oversight, monitoring and enforcement of park rules to 84 park properties within the park system from 7 a.m. – 11p.m., seven days a week. The allocation will provide the necessary salaries to hire additional Park Rangers to provide after-hour patrols.
Currently, these incidents have required a response from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office. This will allow the deputies to remain on their scheduled road patrol assignments.
