Several signs along the White Pine Trail were broken at ground level last week
There was more senseless vandalism in Cedar Springs last week.
According to Cedar Springs Police Chief Roger Parent, a citizen reported to the police department on Wednesday morning, April 23, that someone had damaged a number of signs on the White Pine Trail. Police checked it out, and found signs broken off at ground level along the trail from Church Street north to just behind Vanderhyde Ford. They included three stop signs, which are located at street crossings, and other caution and informational signs.
“This senseless vandalism put at risk those who enjoy and use the White Pine Trail,” remarked Chief Parent. “One may feel that a person on a bike will notice a cross street, but many that use the trail also rely on the trail signs to alert them of a cross street.”
Police notified those in charge of upkeep of the White Pine Trail, and the Cedar Springs DPW reinstalled the stop signs. Anyone with information who was involved in this vandalism should call the Cedar Springs Police at 696-1330.
