MALTA: Neighbors alarmed at sex offender

"We're not a police department," said town attorney Thomas Peterson. "We're not the agency to take care of this problem. We're accessible, but we can't help."

Duval said she would push for the town to set its own Level 2 offender local laws.

"Halloween is coming up, and you can't tell me children won't be going to his door," said Duval. "I'll get thousands of signatures if I have to just to get something done. If there aren't state laws, we need to make our own rules in this town."

Lange said the board would start looking into ways to address her concern, and the concern of the many parents in the room who didn't speak, but applauded when Duval was finished.

"The board will discuss this and try to come up with an answer," said Lange.""
