Photo: Submitted City of Fort St. John – Damaged Trees at Surerus Ball Diamonds

The City of Fort St. John is looking for your help to curb vandalism in the community this summer. Over the past weekend over $8,000 in damage was caused by vehicles driving through parks and boulevards, running down newly-planted trees.

The vandalism isn’t a first for our community as over 50 street signs were knocked down in one weekend and graffiti and damage was done to dugouts at Surerus Park.

According to the City one of the hardest-hit areas is Mathews Park where the Northern Environmental Action Team recently planted 100 trees for Arbour Day. The City is asking that if anyone witnesses an act of vandalism in our parks, or someone driving off City streets in parks or trails, or any other suspicious behaviour, to contact RCMP immediately.

On average, vandalism costs Fort St. John taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars each year.
