Chief Reminds Skateboarders Of Ordinance

Spring has arrived and local individuals have been using skateboards as their mode of transportation.

Greenville Chief of Police Lou Lorton reminds everyone that a city ordinance prohibits skateboarding on any city street and on sidewalks in the downtown area.

He said the ordinance is designed for the safety of the skateboarder.

The park district’s skateboard park is located east of the public swimming pool at William Wait park on the east end of Vine Avenue in Greenville.
