The new splash pad on South Ave. has been vandalized twice this week. The police department is asking for help from the public to find out who is responsible for these damages.

On Wednesday morning a city Parks and Recreation employee called the police department reporting that the activation button was damaged. A temporary fix was made to make the splash pad operational, but the fix didn’t last long.

There was a another report this morning saying the fix from the day before had been taken. Another temporary fix was made until repair parts arrive.
