Water Meter covers

COSTLY COVERS Vandalism that began as graffiti-smeared walls, then evolved to include such ruinous innovations as etched windows and stickered traffic signs, now has a new partner in pointless destruction –  destroyed water meter covers.

Five of the covers, which cost the city $75 each, were destroyed one recent week.

Anyone with information on the cover crushers is asked to call Environmental Services at (707) 822-8184 or Arcata Police at (707) 822-2428.
