With tremendous frustration, we wanted to let you all know that, for the fourth time this summer, the children’s sprinklers in the park have been vandalized and will need to be shut down for repair. We are disgusted that there are those with so little regard for our property that they continue to damage an important part of the children’s playground, particularly important during these hot days of summer. The police are aware of this recurrent vandalism and are working with the village to find those responsible.
It should be noted that each repair costs taxpayers over four hundred dollars, precious funds that could be used for far better things than cleaning up after vandalism. We apologize for this shut down and will make the necessary repairs as quickly as possible.
Anyone who has information related to this vandalism should contact the Orangetown Police desk at 845-359-3700, or if it is in progress, call 911.
