DAVISON, Mich. (AP) - Officials in a Michigan community have taken down skate park equipment because of repeated problems with graffiti.

Davison City Manager Michael Hart tells The Flint Journal (https://bit.ly/1JTphnX ) that the problem stretched back several years, especially with graffiti described as “offensive to families and children.”

The decision came after police, skateboarders and parents in the Flint-area community met about the issue.

Hart says graffiti “got out of hand.” He says a ramp and some rails were taken down on a “temporary basis” at Abernathy Park for cleanup and repairs. Hart says the city is looking to put the equipment back up, but he didn’t offer a timeline for the work.
