LAGRANGE – The LaGrange Town Board is considering an incentive program that would pay rewards to persons to provide information that leads to the arrest and conviction of person who vandalize property in the town.
The idea follows the recent vandalism at the Lagrange Town Park. Two 15-year-olds are being charged with that incident.
Town Attorney Bill Eberhard asked the board if they would support such a measure.
The board gave a favorable response and Eberhard said he needs to check with the State Board of Accounts to see of the reward program would be legal.
If it is allowable then the board would need to pass an ordinance establishing the fund and then include it in future budgets.
