(DANVILLE) -- A Pennsylvania church group has been asked to stop leaving brightly painted rocks with messages like ``You rock!'' at local parks.

The Press Enterprise reports that Danville council members told police to ask the project organizers to stop placing the inspirational rocks in flower beds and grass.

Street Superintendent John Hack says the rocks could become dangerous if run over by a lawn mower, damaging the equipment or turning into projectiles.

Police Chief Eric Gill says he told the youth group the rocks were a problem, even if they were a nice idea.

The newspaper tried to contact the group on its Facebook page, but did not receive a response.
