Please be on the look out and report anything suspicious.
The perpetrator may have gained entry by throwing or using the garbage can as a battering ram at the door until the lock failed. I am still awaiting official updates.
10:45 AM UPDATE: My attention was brought to the village website that did list the following update relating to the village hall closure:
Posted on: April 4, 2019
VILLAGE HALL CLOSED TODAY AND TOMORROWVillage Hall will be closed today,Thursday, April 4th and tomorrow, April 5th. The building was vandalized last night and police are investigating. We will clean up and be open during regular hours on Monday, April 8th. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Let's hope it's nothing serious, but there are no warnings to stay away from the area. Can someone enlighten me? Our Municipal Center is announced as closed without comment. Is it something serious? Has the construction shut down access (if so, advance notice would have been appropriate).
UPDATE: The official Village notification was updated on social media sometime after 9:40 AM (4/4/2019). The closure has been extended to include Friday, April 5, 2019. No further information was made available. Note that all departments housed in the municipal center are closed, including the Building Department.
