You’ll be pros­e­cuted, says coun­cil boss

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

VAN­DALS will face pros­e­cu­tion for dam­age to North Bur­nett re­gional road signs, toi­let blocks, and mon­u­ments. The com­ment came af­ter re­ports that fa­cil­i­ties at Gayn­dah’s Claude Whar­ton Weir had been tar­geted. North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Mark Pitt said all van­dal­ism was re­ported to the po­lice. “If we have the op­por­tu­nity to iden­tify who did it we do pros­e­cute,” Mr Pitt said. “The num­ber of in­ci­dents has been ex­ten­sive. For ex­am­ple ... they twice cut into the main elec­tric­ity board, which is a risk to them­selves and oth­ers. Hence we stopped camp­ing at Claude Whar­ton Weir.” Call 1300 696 272 to pro­vide de­tails about dam­aged coun­cil prop­erty.
