A Letter To The Editor: Downtown Parking Lot Incident
With all of the talk of revitalizing the downtown area and attracting more business, I would like to share this malicious incident that happened to my wife's van while parked in the lot across from the county library.
Sometime between the hours of 6 pm and 9 pm on 9/24/16 someone smashed her driver's side window with an unknown object. No other vehicle was vandalized in the area. My wife was downtown with a friend exercise walking and enjoying the various activities that were taking place - Songwriter's Final 2016 @ HQ Live, etc.
As the enclosed pictures show, my wife parked in a very well lit area. It's amazing nobody witnessed the smashing of the window. Unfortunately the City Police had removed the broken window before she could take a picture of the initial damag (case #2016-46646). I'm communicating this to you to let your readers know that "thug activity" in the ' Bury is a reality in the downtown area. Also, the perpetrator(s) stole nothing from the vehicle or even opened the door. My dear wife was upset and shaken by this because she no longer feels safe taking her weekly walks in the downtown area. Wouldn't there be some sort of video surveillance for that area ? Maybe you might know who I can contact.
