Vandalism has consequences says Council

Council’s Director Planning & Infrastructure, Mark Ihlein, says crews were out on Sunday to respond to the incident of vandalism in and around McDougall’s Reserve on Bridgman Rd in which six sign posts were damaged.

“These attacks on our local infrastructure, particularly on signs, have consequences for community safety and council resources,” he says.

Some of the signs were completely ripped from the ground while others were twisted, or partly knocked over. 

The first report of the damage surfaced on social media early Saturday morning. While some thought it was quite amusing; others were appalled.

Council encourages anyone who witnesses an incident of vandalism to please report it to police.
