Can we get some help in keeping the gates to the area rec centers closed and locked?
If 5D can help in any way, please let me know.

I just called 911 to report this tonight, but people have been lighting fireworks in the field north of the Harry Thomas Rec Center for the past three nights around 9 - 10 p.m. While the illegal fireworks are one issue, the fact that the rec center field gates are always open, when they are supposed to be locked at night, is a longer term issue that's been addressed before but never resolved.
Just this evening around 7:00 there were about six police vehicles - some unmarked - on Lincoln near the unlocked gate and officers were making arrests of juveniles for something. Obviously it's a problem area that only gets worse when the sun goes down and the gates remain unlocked.
