Councilman David Marks reported that there was damaged to the new turf field at Perry Hall High School and said it was a result of fireworks.
“Last night, someone (or some group) thought it would be amusing to set off firecrackers at the new Perry Hall High School turf field,” Marks said. “The scorched area will be replaced, but if you know who trespassed onto school grounds to set off these fireworks, please call the White Marsh precinct at 410-887-5000.”
Marks explained the turf field at Perry Hall is currently open to the public but last night’s event could result in a change of accessible.
He added that his office and Baltimore County Police are overwhelmed with the complaints of fireworks during this time of year.
“Fourth of July fireworks displays are very tough for the police to enforce – there are just so many. I constantly get complaints about loud noise and the impact on pets. Here, public property was destroyed,” Marks said.
