Axe damaged on fire sign

The “axe” on the the fire danger meter sign in front of the Mount Vernon Fire Department’s was damaged last week.

Colin Clasby reported the case of criminal mischief at 9 a.m. Monday, July 27. Someone had tried to remove the “axe” from the sign which indicates the fire danger level. The person bent the mechanism, damaging the electronic components. It will cost $400 to replace.
