St. Charles seeking perpetrators of sign vandalism

LULING – The St. Charles Parish Public Works Department worked to replace and/ or clean multiple stop signs and speed limit signs along Primrose Drive on Tuesday after vandals spray-painted them over the weekend.
The vandals also spray-painted signs in Bayou Gauche over the last few days. Older signs can be cleaned easily with a paint remover, according to St. Charles Parish Risk Manager Monique Granier. However, the newer retro reflective signs cannot be cleaned and must be changed at a cost of approximately $25 per sign plus the cost of labor.
The public is encouraged to call either the Sheriff’s Office at 985-783-6807 or the Emergency Operations Center at 985-783-5050 to report vandalism on any public property. These acts are criminal and prosecutable and can also endanger residents that rely on street signage while driving. Parish officials are also asking residents with any knowledge about the most recent incidents to call the above numbers with any information.
