Neighbors in the Ballinger Neighborhood were dismayed to see the severe vandalism that was done to one of the picnic tables at Brugger's Bog.

Sometime during the last two weeks, the park picnic table was completely destroyed and litter scattered about. The vandalism was pretty intense as the bolts holding the table together were removed and the strong metal support bars were bent.

Neighbors were concerned that this kind of vandalism was possible because of the heavy brush that prevents visibility from 25th, Ballinger Way, or nearby properties.

They reported the damage to the City Parks department, which replaced the table within two days with a stronger and heavier version. In addition, Parks Maintenance Superintendent Kirk Petersen said that the department will soon be cutting back some of the blackberries and invasive plants to increase visibility and alleviate some of the safety concerns.

Vandalism like that occurs in all Shoreline parks, why is Brugger's Bog Park of special interest and so newsworthy?

To make amends with the Friends of Aldercrest for the vector decant snub.

The Friends of Aldercrest wrote a letter of support without any strings attached for the Brugger's Bog storage facility, it was no snub. That neighborhood moved up on the sidewalks construction list over others that had been priorities for years in exchange for their letter. They must have been pretty naive if they thought they were getting something for nothing.
