CLEANING and horticultural work will be impacted in the Woden and Weston Creek region this week following a vandalism attack last night at the ACT Government’s Holder depot.
“Unfortunately our Holder depot was attacked last night by a vandal who cut through security fencing before smashing windows and damaging tyres on eight cleaning and horticultural vehicles,” said Jane Carder, Manager, Place Management, Territory and Municipal Services.
“The vandalism is similar to that experienced at ACT Parks and Conservation’s Athllon depot in June. It is very disappointing as it will impact on cleaning areas of the city like Woden bus station and district parks in the Woden and Weston Creek region.
“We are assisting ACT Policing in their investigation into the incident and are providing them with CCTV footage of the incident.
“Staff resources now need to be redirected towards fixing the damage as quickly as possible so that we can get the vehicles back on the road and our staff delivering core municipal services.
“To report incidents of vandalism or suspicious behaviour please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or to Canberra Connect on 13 22 81.”
