More Signs at Weldon Peete Park

By  | 

An area park that's been the site of recent drownings, is taking more precautions to keep people from swimming there.

County Officials began prohibiting swimming last week, by posting no swimming signs at Weldon Peete Park.

Now more signs have been posted, after family members of a drowning victim said the small signs weren't enough.

18-year old Christopher Morrison drowned at the park last weekend, and 52-year old Richard Stout drowned earlier this month.

The county is also looking into the possibility of putting someone there regularly to monitor the park.
