This destruction of public property has a cost — it will take about $4,000 to replace the lights and will be borne by the city (taxpayers) unless those responsible are held accountable.
Kiwanis Park is located just a couple of blocks west of South Parkway on Southwest Fourth Street in Battle Ground. Anyone with information that might help police identify the suspect(s) is asked to contact Detective Sgt. Kim Armstrong at (360) 342-5252 or via email at kim.armstrong@cityofbg.org, or leave an anonymous tip at http://www.cityofbg.org/tips.
