Council Call on Community to Report Vandalism at Local Field

Date

Release

Central Coast Council is calling on the community to help identify who caused over $20,000 in damage at Northlakes Oval in San Remo.

Council has been forced to close the oval after one of the floodlights was unbolted and knocked down deliberately.

The 20 metre high pole has caused damage to the oval’s surface as well as shattering the lights and leaving shards of glass everywhere.

Council estimates the cost of repairs will be around $20,000 and includes building a new base for the light pole to sit in.

This light pole was the main one that provided power to the other three for local clubs to utilise the field for training of an evening.

Council is working to have power restored to the other three lights so training can resume as normal next week – there will just be a dark corner near the amenities block until staff can re-erect the lights.

This random act of vandalism means local clubs preparations leading into the finals has now been disrupted.

Council is encouraging anyone with information to report it to the Police.
