On June 25 someone stole two large terra cotta planters from the front of the Health Department.
These were extremely heavy so I hope no one injured their back. It may have been the same person who stole our picnic table so now we have had to bolt a new one down in concrete in order to keep it from disappearing.
This property was bought from the pockets of employees to have something nice to welcome our customers and have a place to have lunch outside on a nice day.
There is nothing left to steal that is not bolted down. I really have trouble understanding the mind of people today that have no conscience in stealing from others.
To the thieves, we hope you enjoy your new planters and picnic table. You only hurt yourself. If anyone knows of those responsible please notify the local police department with information.
