Vergennes Police Log: City will enforce parking laws
VERGENNES — Vergennes police are asking area residents to be aware that police are enforcing local parking laws after noticing a series of recent infractions.
Specifically, police said, in the week leading up to this Tuesday they had ticketed a number of cars either parked on the city-owned green strip between sidewalks and roads, thus damaging the lawn or plantings, or parked facing traffic, something that creates a hazard when pulling out. Police warned they will continue to ticket cars parked in those fashions.
On the other hand, the Vergennes wintertime ban on overnight parking on city streets ended this past Friday.
Between March 28 and April 3, Vergennes police fingerprinted five job applicants, responded to one 911 hang-up call and one false alarm, conducted two VIN inspections on cars purchased out of state, went out on four foot patrols, conducted two directed speed-check patrols, checked nine properties to make sure they were secure, and:
• On March 29 issued a subpoena to a local employee on behalf of the Rutland County state’s attorney.
• On March 30 helped Vermont State Police at a drunk-driving stop on Route 7 in New Haven.
• On March 30 went to Vergennes Union High School to investigate a case of a female student being harassed on social media; an investigation is ongoing.
• On March 30 issued a no-trespass order to a city man on behalf of the Vergennes American Legion Post 14.
• On April 1 conducted a background check for a concealed carry permit on behalf of an out-of-state agency.
• On April 1 went to VUHS to look into a report of a missing bicycle wheel and learned it had been stolen as a prank by friends of the bike’s owner.
• On April 3 told youths not to ride dirt bikes on roads in the Town and Country Trailer Park.
• On April 3 stood by while a man retrieved belongings from a Green Street apartment he had shared with a girlfriend.
• On April 3 dealt with a minor two-car accident on Main Street.
