Mayor Ron Payne said skateboards and bikes caused about $4,000 worth of damage this weekend at Riverfront Crossing Plaza, which opened downtown just six months ago. Payne told the Messenger-Inquirer he&rsquo;s proposing an ordinance to outlaw skateboards in the area and stop bicyclists from jumping in the air to do tricks.
