The Regional District of East Kootenay has reduced the operating hours of the public washroom facilities at Windermere Beach after some recent vandalism.
“Vandals not only broke a sink and toilet and left graffiti all over the facility, but they also broke the automatic defibrillator case,” says Kevin Paterson, RDEK environmental services manager.
“There is no excuse for this behaviour and it’s beyond frustrating to see such flagrant disrespect at our park.”
The washroom will be closed at 7 p.m. nightly in the hopes that no further damage occurs.
The RDEK has reported the damage to the RCMP.
“If anyone has any information on who is responsible for these acts of vandalism, we encourage you to report it,” adds Paterson.
They are hoping normal hours will be restored within a couple of weeks.
