McEuen Park is a popular spot to hang out, but lately it's been getting a lot of vandalism, specifically in the parking garage, and now Coeur d'Alene is looking at ways to address the problem.
City staff say they're seeing a lot of vandalism at the parking garage from large groups of people just hanging out, so they've drafted an ordinance that would give police the ability to ticket people who loiter.
According to the city there have been more than 100 police calls for service in that area since opening in March, many of them for disruptive behavior within the parking structure like car break-ins, graffiti and drag racing.
?We're kind of dealing with the aftermath, if there's a mess made or vandalism,? Coeur d'Alene Police Sergeant Christie Wood said.
Police say right now they can only encourage people to leave who aren't using the structure for what it's intended for, but if the ordinance passes they could fine offenders.
Wood said its a good move however she wants to see one major change in the ordinance being proposed.
