RATEPAYERS in the county, having already paid out for an initial spate of criminal damage to the public toilets in Lisnaskea, will have to do so again, following a ‘repeat’ attack last Saturday.
The repair bill for this recent assault, on the toilets for the disabled, is expected to amount to £500.
A spokesman for the council’s technical services department told the Herald that the repairs lasted all day Monday and into yesterday, Tuesday, morning.
“We had all this damage some months ago. This time, we replaced a band new toilet bowl and cistern, and refixed the wash hand basin that had been pulled off the wall, and repaired all the plumbing and pipe work.
“On Tuesday morning, it left it that we just had to come back to tidy up.”
On a previous occasion, some months ago, all three areas, the disabled, ladies and gents, were vandalised.
“That last time, the plumber was hardly gone but they came back and had the toilet bowl broken for a second time.”
Police are investigating, and have appealed to the public for their help in alerting officers if they see suspicious activity in the vicinity of the toilet block.
The number to call is 0845 600 8000. Alternatively. information about crime can be passed via the independent Crimestoppers number on 0800 555 111.
