Vandalism at Gillsville park
BY SHARON HOGAN
Vandals recently damaged a picnic table and broke a window at the Gillsville Park.
Council member Todd Dale reported at a city council meeting last week that someone had spray painted all over the tables under the picnic pavilion with blue spray paint. A name is painted on the tables, Dale said. A window was also broken at the park building.
City clerk Paula Whiting said that Dwight Miller said he would open and close the gate if he is the one chosen to do the grass cutting. Keeping the gate closed at night might help cut down on the vandalism at the park, leaders said. However, the council agreed there is no need to lock the gate if the fence is not going to be put back up because someone could drive around the gate and get in.
