Council concerned at recent park vandalism
July 11, 2011
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Paul Green has expressed his disgust at the recent vandalism of a park in Sullivan Street, Worrigee.
Taking place on Thursday 30 June, vandals caused serious structural damage to part of a picnic shelter after lighting a fire within the park confines.
Further to this the Fire Brigade and Police were called in to help identify eight drums of a hazardous two-part epoxy substance which was poured across the adjoining play equipment.
“Shoalhaven City Council is already struggling to locate funds to keep up with the playground replacement program let alone find more money to replace or repair playgrounds damaged by vandals,” said Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Paul Green.
“This act of vandalism is totally unacceptable and we are appealing to local residents to come forward with any information about the incident
“Council has increased funds to provide attractive open spaces for the citizens of the Shoalhaven however acts of needless vandalism like this makes it harder for us to do so.”
Residents who can assist Council with any information on this matter or witness any other types of vandalism or graffiti occurring within local streets or open spaces are asked to call the Police on 131 444, Ranger Services on (02) 4429 3111 or Council after hours on (02) 4421 3100.
