Panels from the screen at the town entrance were removed – can you help identify the thief?
Local Tony Stewart was disappointed to discover the new screens at the town entrance has been cut.
“The fence has been really badly vandalised and will probably have to be replaced with ratepayer funds. After consulting with Mark McDonald, I used about 50 zipties to fix it the best I could.”
Local police advise the theft occurred on the night of May 30, 2016 (a Monday night), and was reported to police by the council the following morning.
The panels missing are a panoramic photo of the Carlo Sandblow, and an aerial shot of Double Island Point…
Gympie Regional Council say the entrance banner was a trial tourism initiative and never intended to be a permanent entry statement. Council is considering the options of retaining what remains or removing it completely.
As Tony said, “Someone here must know something about this?”
The identity of the offenders is unknown.
