NOTICE OF POSTING CAMERAS AT WIRE BRIDGE

The Town Office would like to inform the public that with the recent unfortunate events at the Wire Bridge Area, we are in the process of installing cameras to try and prohibit people from vandalism and being disrespectful to this beautiful area.  There have been a number of sightings and evidence left on site from people abusing this area.  It is very unfortunate that we have to do this but we see no other alternative at this time.  Please if anyone happens to see any uncalled for activity in this area DO NOT HESITATE TO CALL 911  and report the actions to the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office.

 

Respectfully,

New Portland Town Officials
