Another Kewaunee County Park is being victimized by vandals this week. The Kewaunee County Promotions and Recreation Department has been forced to clean up graffiti and unwind swings from poles twice over the last five days in addition to picking up a large amount of trash not making its way to the proper receptacles. Parks Director Dave Myers says the Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the incidents as they beef up on other efforts to keep the park safe and clean.
Myers says specific plans addressing the vandalism will be discussed at an upcoming committee meeting. The Algoma Parks Department was forced to institute a curfew for a time at Perry Park after it suffered through similar graffiti and littering issues in May. Similar to Door County, the Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department has been forced to address other vandalism calls specific to political signs posted on private property.
