Reward offered following more senseless vandalism

2020-11-23T00:00:00

Shire officers are again on cleanup duty this morning after another spate of vandalism over the weekend. Over the last two weeks a total of eight solar bollards have been smashed along Linear Path.

"It is very frustrating to see this total lack of respect for property and public safety, said Shire President Paul Omodei. "We have been making a conscious effort to beautify the streetscapes in all of our towns and setbacks such as this, not only affect our amenity, but take Shire officers away from their core duties".

"We are calling on resident's civic pride to help identify the offenders reminding everyone that in accordance with Council Policy 2.3.7 the Shire offers a reward of up to $1000 to any person providing information which leads to the conviction of offenders of any act of vandalism to Shire of Manjimup owned or managed property, added Cr Omodei, someone knows who is doing this and $1000 could come in very handy at this time of year".

We are urging anyone with information​ to come forward. When caught, offenders will be dealt with by the full force of the law and we will be pressing charges. The vandalism of public property is not only a criminal act, it is senseless, distasteful and a waste of ratepayers money. The recent damage is estimated to be in the order of $5,000.
