Shelton Alderman Stanley Kudej said the winter has taken a toll on Riverview Park on Howe Avenue, with trucks using the basketball courts to dump extra snow.

Kudej said this has “ruined the pavement” and created holes, including in the parking lot, which is damaging residents’ cars.

“It’s a disgrace ... It’s a serious problem up there,” said Kudej, suggesting the city needs to find the money to make the needed improvements.

Riverview Park includes basketball courts, a playground, scenic overlook, baseball fields and the War Memorial Building.

Kudej and some other aldermen noted the park is a frequently used outdoor facility.
