The Town of Camp Verde is looking for solutions to help combat a rash of vandalism on its property over the last few weeks and months.

Another window at the Camp Verde Adult Education and Enrichment Center is covered with a board after being recently smashed by a vandal. The reading program’s building has suffered three broken windows this year.Most of the damage centers around the town-owned building off of Main Street and ranges from broken windows to burned tables, said Mike Dumas, maintenance foreman with the town’s Parks and Recreation Department.

A cursory inspection reveals some of the damage. Boards cover some of the broken glass panes at the Camp Verde Adult Reading Center. The center of a green picnic table under the town ramada is charred.

Kathy Brezina, director of the reading program, said someone threw a rock through one of the windows.

Someone also apparently injured themselves. Brezina said they discovered a broken window one morning and a pool of blood, specks of which are still visible on the sidewalk.
