April 2011 Quarterly Delmar Police Commission

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.

That girl's parents should be charged with aiding and abetting or something for lying jackkcharl@aol.com

Was this the graffiti at the Little League park? Kudos to whoever painted over the graffiti quickly and completely. Now if we could just get the dugouts painted....oh well...

That girls parents should have to be the ones go out there and clean up after their kid in addition to a hefty fine!

So the humvees were "free" huh?
Let's not ignore the fact that they will have to maintain them, tag them, pay insurance on them and now, they're going to paint them too!
So much for FREE! Snookered AGAIN!
On top of that, they want to put 2 paid officers at the high school for morning and afternoon traffic. No doubt it will be overtime pay! How about FIXING the problem so you don't need 2 officers out there twice a day? I get so tired of Delmar putting bandaids on problems instead of fixing the problem. It costs way more money to do it the way they do it! No wonder taxes are so high!

Sounds like you'd like to volunteer 10:27! Little League needs more go-getters like you! E-mail someone over there and I am sure they can put you to work!

Then pick up a paint brush 9:15. Not touchy. Just saying if as many people helped as complain you wouldn't have to comment on a blog about things not getting done. Just saying.
