Following a slew of purported juvenile shenanigans in the Village by the Sea, Langley city officials are advising residents to keep an eye out for future teenage mischief.
During a meeting this week, Public Works Director Randi Perry told the city council about a stop sign that was stolen from the First Street and De Bruyn Avenue intersection sometime over the weekend. In addition, Perry said a report came in to a public works crew that a woman had chased away some teens that were attempting to take apart the playground structure at Generation Park, which is near the site of the sign theft.
At a council meeting earlier this month, Perry informed the council of significant vandalism to the picnic tables and benches down at Seawall Park, which she said was quite expensive to fix.
“Call the police, let them know that that’s going on, because four days after the fact isn’t helpful,” she said this week.
In April, young vandals targeted Whidbey Island Fairgrounds buildings and a mural at the South Whidbey Community Center. They also discharged fire extinguishers into rabbit burrows.
