FULTON, Miss. (AP) - Following a costly series of vandalism, the security system in Fulton's downtown park is receiving a major overhaul.
Earlier this month, 3 of the stone grates that circle the main statue at the center of the park were pulled from their places and shattered. Each of these stones costs around $150 to replace.
The vandals also opened a small maintenance hatch in the ceiling of the park's gazebo.
City officials say the new security system will be a vast improvement over the old. There will be eight light intensifier cameras, each providing a far more detailed picture than the current infrared cameras can provide.
The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (http://bit.ly/QyyjL1 ) the estimated cost of the new system is just under $5,000.
