Bathrooms at Rockwood’s Mike “Brillo” Miller Sports Complex were vandalized this weekend.

City Recorder Becky Ruppe said three handles were torn from sinks, and soap dispensers were ripped off the walls. Park and recreation director Jody Mioduski said the sink damage was in the women’s bathroom next to the press box, while the soap dispensers were broken in both men and women’s rooms.

“It is really sad,” Mioduski said.

He estimated the damage around $200.

Both he and Ruppe said they hope security cameras the city plans to install at different locations in the city will make a difference.

The city has requested to use leftover TVA funds from the Kingston Fossil Plant ash spill to install the cameras.
