Last night someone destroyed the metal street bench that sits on the sidewalk alongside the Library park. It is unknown who or what caused the damage to the bench that came to the town with the ODOT street improvements to Second Ave. A city employee is going to attempt to repair the bench, but it is unknown at this time if it is repairable. 

Whether this was vandalism or a hit and run driver, it has resulted in a loss to the people of Gold Hill. The citizens of Gold Hill are encouraged to be vigilant and observant and to report to City Hall or the Jackson County Sheriff's Office if they see something. Additionally, City Manager Rob Lowe had a meeting with Lt Scott Waldon of JCSO to discuss code enforcement and patrol priorities.
