Vandals Hit Blue Mountains

Blue Mountains | by Kevin Bernard  

Town staff say vandalism has caused $25,000 in damage in Blue Mountains.


The Town of The Blue Mountains is appealing to the public to help reduce vandalism.

So far this year, Town Staff estimate the cost of public property vandalism to local ratepayers is over 25 thousand dollars.

In a news release from town hall,  officials say the vandalism is occurring in town parks, the harbour, on local road signage, and on other municipal properties.

You are asked to report any suspicious activity, or vandalism in progress to the O.P.P. 

Town officials recommend you:

o   Keep your building windows visible and the area well lit.

o   Be watchful of strangers and immediately report suspicious actions near homes, schools, vacant buildings, businesses or other structures.

o   Ask your neighbour to help keep watch over your home or business while you are away. 

o   Join the Neighbourhood Watch in your community. Call Larry Hall at 519-599-6262 or email [email protected] for more information.
