At least four tax-payer-owned facilities have been vandalized in the last two weeks and authorities want to know who is responsible.

Spray paint appears to be the medium favored by the vandal or vandals, and has been used on the exterior of Boyne City High School and its athletic complex, Avalanche Mountain’s warming hut and Wilson Township hall.

“It appears the same paint used on the Wilson Township Hall was used on the high school in Boyne City,” said Charlevoix County Sheriff W. Don Schneider. “Deputies and officers are doing interviews … on some people of interest and that’s where it’s at at the very moment.”

According to the Boyne City Police Department, the cases of vandalism within the city limits occurred in the evening of Tuesday Nov. 8.

Bright orange and pink spray paint were used.

Wilson Township Hall has the words “Change the norm” painted across it in letters several feet high.

If anyone has any information regarding these events, please contact the Boyne City Police Department at (231)582-6611 or 911.
