The 109th Precinct and Councilman Paul Vallone teamed up to address the issue of illegal parking of commercial trucks, tractor-trailers and waste removal vehicles at Harvey Park in College Point.
According to the councilman, the trucks are parked around the park day and night, becoming a chronic issue for local park goers.
The Dwarf Giraffe Athletic League brought the problem to the attention of Vallone, who met with the precinct in November.
Since then, local officers have issued 15 truck/trailer parking summonses in the area.
“We did touch base with Sanitation as they were assisting, as well as focusing on the waste trucks in the area,” said Commanding Officer Captain John L. O’Connell. “We will continue to address this issue and make sure any illegally parked trucks/trailers will be issued summonses.”
