Communities In Bloom is getting tired of replacing plants that disappear.
The Waterwheel Park area seems to be the worst.
“We are volunteers trying to enhance our community and it is frustrating and disappointing to spend time and money redoing flower beds so that someone can steal our efforts,” noted group member Rondeau Fenton.
Another volunteer reported to Fenton he went to the Waterwheel beds to fertilize June 29 and discovered another marigold had been taken from the far right side.
By 4 p.m., he saw that five more plants – three lobelia and two marigold – had been taken from the same location.
The person doing this was very brazen and had removed the plants in daylight hours.
CIB would like the community to be diligent and report any vandalism pertaining to the plants.
