On Monday, Sept. 12, Village of Gambier officials cut locks and confiscated three bikes that were locked to signposts around town. According to a long-standing village ordinance, the Village can confiscate bikes found in these areas and bring them to the Village Garage.
"It's been happening all along," Village Administrator Suzanne Hopkins said. "It's just been getting progressively worse this year."
"The Village has always removed bikes from trees and signposts — it just seems there are more this year," Chief Business Officer Mark Kohlman agreed. Owners of confiscated bikes will not be notified, but they can find their bikes at the garage.
