The debate over whether the Hastings-on-Hudson school district should install Geo-turf at Reynolds Field as part of a bond proposal for a number of districtwide facility upgrades has led to some criminal activity in the village, according to police.
Village Police reported receiving a call at 7:08 p.m. on September 24 from a resident who claimed to have knowledge that "numerous" signs reading "Save Reynolds Field," advising residents to vote against the proposed bond, had been stolen from various locations throughout Hastings.
About two hours later, a second resident called police to say that between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. that day, a sign on Wagner Place reading, "Vote Yes to bond" had gone missing. The caller also said "Booster Fact Sheets" had gone missing. The sign is valued at $11, police said.
A 9:24 p.m. caller from a Villard Avenue resident on September 25 told police a voting sign had been removed from his property sometime overnight.
