Rewards offered after vandals hit Norway school, other properties

NORWAY — The City of Norway and Norway-Vulcan Area Schools are offering cash rewards for information that leads to the prosecution and conviction of those vandalizing public and private property in Norway.

Among other things, the Strawberry Lake Park bathrooms have been damaged, the park and school have been defaced and fires have been set on private and school property, according to a letter penned by Norway City Manager Ray Anderson and NVAS Superintendent Louis Steigerwald.

“Our city and our school district are making an open plea to our residents to help stop this illegal behavior,” the two stated. “We have a fine city, lovely parks and an excellent school district. This community does not deserve to have the actions of a few make victims of the many. Add to that, the recent arson raised the danger to all of us to a new and unacceptable level.”

Norway police are working to find those responsible, the letter stated. Anyone with information should contact police at 906-563-5801.
