Members of the Mollymook community are asked to be on the lookout in the vicinity of Sandridge Cemetery, for people who may be removing plants and memorabilia from graves or ash interment sites.
Council has received several reports of items being stolen and also about dogs roaming off leash and their owners not cleaning up after them.
Mayor, Joanna Gash said everyone grieves in a different way, the loss of special tokens is extremely distressing for families, as is the removal of plants, gifts or items placed on the graves of loved ones.
“It is also disturbing to hear that the area is being used to exercise dogs, there are other locations that can be used for that purpose,” said Clr Gash.
“Council has been working closely with the local police to ensure that they are aware of the events and Shoalhaven City Council Rangers will also be increasing their surveillance of the area.”
“We are also encouraging the local community to report any concerning activity directly to Council on 02 44293111,” said Clr Gash.
