Shelburne's Mayor "Disgusted" With Recent Vandalism

Posted on Friday, July 14, 2017 11:24 AM

Shelburne town council recently approved the purchase of security cameras for a couple of public venues.

They could have been useful earlier this week....washrooms near Guild Hall and at Graham's Park were vandalized.

Mayor Karen Mattatall says both incidents are believed to have occurred Wednesday evening while it was still light out.

She says paper towel and toilet paper were thrown around the Guild Hall washroom but damage at Graham's Park was worse because a sink was plugged and the water left on.

Mattatall says the town invests a lot in its facilities for people to enjoy.

It's very disappointing to see people go in and do that. There's lots of visitors and lots of local people that go in there and it's very disheartening to go in and see a mess like that."

She says the RCMP will be keeping a close watch on the two locations.
