SHARPSBURG - Sharpsburg officials on Monday night instructed the town's resident deputy to crack down on skateboarders acting recklessly.
Skateboarders trespassing on other people's property or riding recklessly has been an ongoing problem that probably will get worse when the school year ends, town officials said.
The town does not permit people to ride skateboards, bikes or in-line skates on sidewalks in town, according to a copy of the town law.
Violators' skateboards will be confiscated, town officials said Monday night.
One resident told town officials Monday night that more than a dozen skateboarders recently were riding near his house, and hitting his house while riding, late at night.
