Greeneville Parks board wants skaters who don't wear helmets fined

June 29th, 2009 12:00 am by Staff Report

The Greeneville Parks and Recreation Advisory Board  wants increased enforcement of the rules at the Greeneville Skate Park. It's  second time in three months such an effort has been made, according to the Greeneville Sun.

The board has recommended  a new city ordinance that would fine skaters who do not wear helmets, but the Police Department has not signed onto the suggestion.

The ordinance must be approved by the Greeneville Board of Mayor and Aldermen to become official.

The report says City Recorder Jim Warner told the BMA that Police Chief Terry Cannon says his department does not have the manpower to enforce such an ordinance.
