Vandalism

Vandalism certainly is not a unique problem to our community, but with your help and support, the solution to the problem could be forthcoming. What is needed is your involvement in curbing the problems. Become an interested citizen and call your Park District or Police Department if you see any acts of vandalism occurring. Many times people sit back and say they do not want to get involved.  Possibly if you knew how much of your tax dollars goes to vandalism repair, you would want to get involved.

In addition to calling and reporting vandalism, what can you do? You can teach your children to respect the property of others. Know where your children are and what they are doing. Set a curfew for your children and enforce it!

Any vandals caught, will be prosecuted and required by law to reimburse the Park District for damage.
