Woodbury Public Safety: More vandalism costs taxpayers more money

Woodbury Public Safety says increased vandalism in local parks have cost taxpayers more than usual for repairs and staff time.

The department reported four broken toilets, a damaged urinal and a broken window at the HealthEast Sports Center Madison's Place playground, according to a news release. The damage will cost more than $2,000 to repair.

Other extensive damage was found at Ojibway Park and Stonemill Farms Park.

Public Safety is asking the public to assist in finding the people responsible. The community is encouraged to report any suspicious activity to the police by calling 911.

Existing vandalism on parks and trails can be reported to non-emergency dispatch by calling 651-439-9381.
