Officer Stacy Rogers patrols Belle Isle. He’s the one that wrote the ticket.
He said his goal is to keep the park clean for everybody.
“Essentially what we’re trying to do is leave behind only footprints when they come into the parks,” Rogers said.
He said chalk doesn’t always wash away in the rain and often city crews have to come clean it.
NBC12 has the details on a mother who was given a $300+ ticket for allowing her 4yr to decorate a Belle Isle rock with sidewalk chalk. On top of the ticket the woman has also been banned from all city parks. The official crime title, “destruction of public property”.
