City Corner: Vandalism


Each year the City has thousands of dollars of public property damaged or destroyed as a result of vandalism.  

This wanton action results in wasted public resources, is a criminal offense, and sometimes can cause injury or worse.  

An example is the removal of traffic signs, especially stop signs.  It has been found that most vandalism is the result of only a handful of individuals.  

You can help in this costly act by reporting any observed vandals to Police through 911.
