  • Riverfront Trail Lights - Council received a report from Parks, Recreation & Community relations Director, David Shea, on vandalism of holiday lights along Riverfront trail in June. Vandalism has been related to the theft of copper wire and will cost upwards of $60,000 to repair. This investment had previously been budgeted for new lights to expand this year’s Light Up Riverview display, which will now be redirected toward the repairs. Aluminum wire will be used in the repairs in an effort to decrease future theft.
