Reward offered in park vandalism

The City Council decided to crack down on vandalism Tuesday. At member Jerry Beverland's suggestion, the council voted to offer a $1,000 reward to people whose information leads to the arrest of vandals defacing local parks and other city property. It also voted to erect warning signs to deter vandalism. Brazen acts of vandalism at R. E. Olds Park prompted Beverland's suggestions. Last month, someone tore shingles and siding from a new bathroom at the park. About two months ago, someone set fire to the bathroom's paper-towel dispenser in daylight. Beverland said he wants the city to look into putting up more lights at Olds Park. Vice Mayor Rosemary Wiseman said the city should enlist the Sheriff's Office to patrol the park more often.
