Shire chief Stephanie Addison-Brown speaks out on cost of vandalism to ratepayers

Any witnesses to a spate of local vandalism are being urged to contact police, with the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River warning this year’s damage bill will cost residents almost $10,000.

Fresh vandalism and graffiti at the Margaret River Youth Precinct skate park toilets at the weekend followed recent attacks in Witchcliffe and toilet blocks in Margaret River at Rotary Park, Memorial Park, and on Fearn Avenue.

Shire chief executive Stephanie Addison-Brown said the latest incidents needed residents to take action.

She also asked anyone knowing the culprits to speak to them about their behaviour and the cost to ratepayers.

“Graffiti or tagging is a crime, and this type of reoccurring vandalism comes at a great cost to our community,” Ms Addison-Brown said.

“I ask all community members to report any suspicious activity to the police or those who know who is responsible to please encourage them to stop.”

Contact local police on 9757 8600.
