(La Porte, IN) - A park in La Porte apparently has a problem with drug dealers and the homeless. Mayor Tom Dermody revealed this week there’s an issue at the park beside City Hall. Brian Mrozinski lives across the street at the Rumely Historic Apartments. Mrozinski said he sees and hears the undesirable activity at the park on a regular basis and watches it up close with binoculars. He said much of the “hoopin and hollerin’” goes on between midnight and 3 a.m. Mrozinski said the homeless at the park lay down on park benches and on blankets laid over the ground.
Residents at the apartment complex say they would like to use the nicely landscaped park but fear for their safety. Dermody said the city is working on a plan to make the residents there feel safe at the park.
