Vandals strike Purdy caboose

Thursday, October 15, 2009

Purdy aldermen discussed the recent vandalism of the city's caboose during the Oct. 12 city council meeting.

Shortly after the caboose located in the city's park was repainted, graffiti was spray painted on the outside of the caboose.
According to Purdy Police Chief Jackie Lowe, there have not been any leads on who vandalized the caboose. Aldermen agreed to offer a $500 reward leading to the arrest or conviction of the person or persons responsible for the vandalism of the caboose. Anyone with information pertaining to the vandalism is asked to contact the Purdy Police Department at 417-442-7429.

Lowe told aldermen he plans to attend the upcoming CrimeStoppers meeting to discuss the matter. In an effort to help prevent possible future vandalism, aldermen discussed placing an outside light near the caboose.

In his report, Public Works Superintendent Teddy McIntire told aldermen he had received bids to do the electrical work needed at one of the city's lagoons. The winning bid was received from Steve Paul, of Verona.

In other business, aldermen requested City Clerk Debbie Redshaw to send a notice to Purdy residents reminding them to change their addresses on voter registration cards to the new 911 address.

The next Purdy City Council meeting is scheduled for Nov. 9 at 5:30 p.m.
