The Town of Norway, according to an announcement on their Facebook page, has had a second break-in at their park building around July 2 or 3. This was after a break-in of the same park building on June 4 as announced in a previous meeting.
Minor vandalism and theft in the park building included carved initials on the wall (the letter “M” was visible); ketchup squirted on the floor, walls, and countertop; stolen freezer pops, water, and chips; and turned over waste bins.
Mayor Clemons stated, “Effective immediately, under this administration, we will not provide bounce houses, waterslides, or any events at the park. We work so hard to bring events to the community, and this is what we have to deal with.”
When contacted by The T&D over email regarding the break-in and events in the town, Mayor Clemons said, “I prefer not to elaborate on either at this time.”
