Council vote to close pathway access, but not pay for it to be done

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- City Council Members voted to close access to the pathway at 23rd and Lincoln Avenues because of crime issues, but the city won't be paying for the closure. 

A council room full of people spoke both for and against the pathway closure, which is on city owned land. Some home owners believe closing the access will reduce crime in the area, but others disagreed. 

It's unknown at this point how the area will be closed off and who will pay for it.
