Week in Review: June 26 to July 2

The week in headlines from Whitefish Bay Patch.

With some residents concerned about the spraying of pesticides in village shrub beds, the Environmental Advisory Commission is seeking volunteers to take over the responsibility of weeding and maintaining the shrubs without using chemicals.

Five teenagers were cited for tearing down poles, cutting down a tree and doing other damage to playground on three separate occassions. Three 18-year-old Whitefish Bay men, a 19-year-old Brookfield man and a 16-year-old Whitefish Bay boy were all cited with criminal damage to property and trespassing for the latest vandalism incident that occurred between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. June 18.

About six to eight young people fled when police arrived to investigate a fire along the beach on the 6100 block of Lake Drive. In other police news, three 15-year-old boys were caught smoking marijuana in the parking lot and a resident on Cramer Street gets fed up with teen vandalism.
