Algoma Park closed due to vandalism -- UPDATED, Park reopened

Perry Field in Algoma reopened today, earlier than expected, after being closed due to vandalism done a couple of weeks ago.  City Administrator Jared Heyn says the use of a buffing device was able to remove the graphic graffeti that was on slides in the playground area.  




Original story from Monday

You will have to wait at least a week to enjoy the use of Perry Field in Algoma as the city deals with vandalism that occurred recently at the park.   Vandals defaced playground equipment earlier this month and Algoma City Administrator Jared Heyn says the vandalism was graphic in nature and will require some work this week to restore the slide.   As a procedure, the city closed the park temporarily to clean up the vandalism that will present some challenges for public works crews.



Heyn says the best-case scenario will be Perry Field reopening to the public by the end of this week.  He says the Algoma Parks Department will meet on December 20 to discuss possible other solutions, if the removal of the graffiti is not possible without wrecking the slide.  No other vandalism has been reported at other city property, according to Heyn.
