The Quarterly Delmar Police Commission meeting was held tonight. Both Mayor Doug Niblett and Mayor Michael Houlihan were present but Councilman Woody Payne was missing. Chief of Police Harold Saylor gave his report and discussed other items. Some of which were;
A couple of complaints about happenings in State Street Park. A resident called 911 about loud music in the park. Since it was a non-emergency item 911 put it to the bottom of the stack and Delmar Police were not notified. The music stopped on it's own. If you have a non-emergency problem the number in Delmar to call is; 410-896-3132.UPDATE I HAVE BEEN TOLD THE NUMBER FOR SMALL OR LARGE PROBLEMS IS 410-896-3131.
A resident reported graffiti was sprayed in the park. The police visited the family of a suspect (young girl) and her family said she was home all night. The police found spray paint on her fingernails. They are looking at collecting costs of painting over the graffiti from the girl's family.
The Delmar High School Traffic pattern still isn't settled as a meeting with Dr. Ring has not occurred. Chief Saylor said he thinks two officers on duty, all traffic flowing in one direction, and buses down Lincoln Avenue will work. Mayor Douglas Niblett suggested having a left and right turn lane at the intersection of 8th and State street.
They are going to paint the humvees black and white.
They are reviewing bid proposals for converting the current town hall to a public safety building.
At 6:55 p.m. they went to executive session and I left.
