Danbury officials are working on several changes to City ordinances in an effort to protect quality of life. There were a number of issues over the course of the past couple of summers prompting the proposals. Mayor Mark Boughton and Parks and Rec Director Nick Kaplanis have been talking about the idea of park rangers.
Boughton says there have been instances where people sign out Rogers Park fields and it ends up that not the right people are on the right fields. The park rangers would be given a schedule for the day and which fields were signed out.
He says they could also be noise control officers just for the park Boughton suggested that they could be retired officers or firefighters.
Boughton is still working on the budget for the coming fiscal year and doesn't know if the city will have funding available for the part time positions. But he says it's something he wants considered.
