SCHODACK, N.Y. (AP) — After New York State Park Police broke up a rowdy fraternity party in a state park, officials in the upstate town are calling for the state to repay the costs of local police enforcement.

The Times-Union of Albany reports ( ) Saturday's party was organized by a University at Albany frat, drawing about 1,000 people to Schodack (SKOH'-dak) Island State Park, on the Hudson River just south of Albany.

Officials say park police shut down the party because of illegal drug use and underage drinking and called in town police for help.

Schodack town officials want the state to reimburse the town for the expense of calling its officers in to help with the park situation. They estimated the town spent more than $2,500.

The Rensselaer County Legislature is expected to contact the state regarding the incident.
