Manchester panel hears legal concerns on Bronstein Park ban, backs it with vote
The meeting was called by Ward 6 Alderman Garth Corriveau, who criticized the abrupt nature of the no-trespassing order, prior to review by the aldermen.
The hearing, which lasted more than two hours, featured testimony from the city’s police and fire chiefs, the district superintendent, as well as the staff attorney for the N.H. Civil Liberties Union.
Later, Levasseur praised the approach the police took, focusing on education rather than citing people, but faulted the chief for not telling him how the ban would be enforced.
“I don’t get elected to make decisions based on whether it will result in a lawsuit or not,” said Ward 3 Alderman Pat Long, the chairman of the committee.
