You’ll be prosecuted, says council boss
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.
