Who left this costly mess?
A senseless act of vandalism outside City Hall over the weekend caused nearly $7,000 in damages and repair costs. With a $5,000 insurance deductible, city taxpayers will be stuck covering that amount.
Three upright landscaping Bollard Lights were found smashed or knocked over on the walkway from West Maple Street leading to City Hall. Also, two ground-level lamps that shine on the City Hall flagpoles were either busted or pulled out. Some electrical wires were left exposed.
