— “It is more disappointing than frustrating,” Cooper said of the vandalism. “However, I and many others in TMSP and Kiwanis will continue to be part of any effort which works on projects for the greater good of our citizens and town.”

Ticonderoga Supervisor Deb Malaney said local officials will continue to fight vandalism.

“The recent vandalism of the bridge flowers is very discouraging,” Malaney said. “It’s difficult to prevent all mischief and vandalism, obviously the police can’t be everywhere at once. However, the new video camera system has helped solve many issues since its installation and there’s a good chance it will help this time, as well.

“For a variety of reasons, vandalism is problematic in many communities and Ti is working on both short and long term strategies to reduce the problem,” she continued. “Our police are determined to get to the bottom of this, and I’m sure they will. People can help by reporting activity or call the anonymous TIPS hotline at 585-3080.”
