Anger at spate of van­dal­ism

Kwinana Courier - - Front Page -

CITY of Rock­ing­ham coun­cil­lor Matt Whit­field is hop­ping mad about a spate of van­dal­ism.

“$200,000 was the cost to put new ir­ri­ga­tion and turf at an oval and a ve­hi­cle was driven re­cently over this,” he said.

“Three parks in the city were se­verely dam­aged over De­cem­ber and two pub­lic toi­lets were dam­aged, po­ten­tially cost­ing hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars.

“No one likes pay­ing rates but ma­li­cious dam­age, van­dal­ism, lit­ter­ing and graf­fiti ul­ti­mately costs us – the ratepay­ers.”

Cr Whit­field urged res­i­dents to re­port any sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity to police on 131 444.

“If you see some­thing please re­port it,” he said.

City of Rock­ing­ham coun­cil­lor Matt Whit­field, seen here at the tyre-marked oval, is urg­ing res­i­dents to re­port van­dal­ism.
