Vandal cost continues
VANDALS are still costing ratepayers to repair the damage to public facilities, with Mareeba Shire forking out more than $31,000 to date this financial year.
Another seven reports of vandalism were recorded in May, with six of them occurring at public toilet facilities in Dimbulah and Mareeba.
The Dimbulah Memorial Hall was the another target.
The worst year for vandalism was 2020-21 when council forked out $62,199 to repair damage, with the second highest last year at $48,301.
