City Looking to Crack Down On Vandalism

The most recent, in what Alderman Lucas Remley called a long line of transgressions against city improvements had the city council discussing fines and restitution at the October 5th meeting of the board of aldermen.

Remley noted his disgust when he saw the damage a motorist had done on a freshly resurfaced city street last week. He described the obvious vandalism as a five or 10 foot rut that was cut down to the old road surface, ruining the work done by the street department.

The alderman questioned city attorney David Peppard regarding fines for such acts.

Peppard stated the maximum fine for a municipal violation is $500 but added that prosecution can seek restitution for damages. He noted that a crime in excess of $750 of damage becomes a felony.

ďI just get tired of seeing us spend money to fix things up to turn around and see people have torn it up and wasted the taxpayerís money being spent to improve the city,Ē Remley said.

City Police Officer John Myers stated the department would actively pursue investigations of property damage. He asked that city employees and citizens make an effort to report such cases of vandalism as soon as they are noticed.
