Council has had to undertake a series of urgent repairs to the safety fencing and gates that surround the Millicent Swimming Lake since the facility was reopened in early November, as a result of senseless vandalism.
“It is extremely disappointing that a small antisocial group continue to vandalise this unique community asset” Council’s Chief Executive Officer, Ben Gower said.
“This is the second occasion in a week where safety fencing has been damaged. The repair costs have been significant with over $1,200 spent already this season”
“If any member of the public witnessed these events or see it happening again in the future, we ask that you immediately report it to the police” Mr Gower requested.
“If the offenders are caught, Council will be seeking to have those responsible charged.”
“We are all very fortunate to have free access to such a wonderful asset like the swimming lake, and we hope that this kind of behaviour stops immediately.”
