Drugs make the dumb, dumber--bad combination.

The gazebo is made of redwood that cost an unimaginable amount of money to replace. It takes about 3 months to have the wood shipped in and the cost of a slat alone is more than one would think. I hope whoever is responsible is caught and prosecuted!

Which gazebo was it? If it's the one by city hall, seems odd the police didn't notice/hear anything.

The Police dept is half a block away with City Hall sitting between it and the gazebo, not to mention that the building is brick. There is a camera in the gazebo but it's not operational at this time....if it were operational, they at least could post a picture of the person or persons who vandalized it--this time.

C.C., thanks for the heads-up on the fact that the "camera" at the gazebo is non-operational. About 4 years ago, I was on a date and had decided that the gazebo would be a safe place to sit and chat with my date since it is so close to the police station, the Leroy traffic, etc. My date decided to get extremely "fresh" with me and a brawl ensued between him and I. I had thought at the time that it was odd no one heard me or tried to help me. I am supposing that the camera hasn't worked in a very long time and needs to be fixed.
