Wilton Police to fine trespasser at closed fields and recreation areas

Wilton will implement a fine for people trespassing on the fields and recreation areas in Town. First Selectwoman Lynne Vanderslice announced an order for the police to issue a $92 trespassing fine to each individual using a closed field or recreation facility. 

They include, but are not limited to WHS and Middlebrook tennis courts, Comstock and School basketball courts, Allen’s Meadows playing fields , Lilly Turf Field, WHS North Field, Guy Whitten Field, WHS Stadium Track and Turf Field, Middlebrook fields, Hurlbutt Street fields, WHS and other Town owned baseball and softball fields, Merwin Meadows playground, Comstock playground and school playgrounds.

Specifically excluded from the order are residents tending their plot at the Community Gardens at Allen’s Meadows and residents walking, jogging or biking through Allen’s Meadows and Merwin Meadows, which are connectors for trails.   

She notes that the Wilton Police Department has been recognized statewide for its community policing and its relationship with the community, and this is something they and she wishes was not required. 

At Monday's Wilton Board of Selectmen meeting, members reviewed possible revenue risks to this year’s results and next year’s proposed budget, along with actual and possible direct costs as a result of coronavirus.  This included housing to isolate and quarantine emergency responders, Board of Education janitors redeployed to perform cleaning elsewhere, VNA nurses, including school nurses, redeployed to perform nursing duties and assist within the health department, temporary personnel to assist in the health department and cover vacancies along with increased medical benefits costs.
