The city of Fort Payne is beefing up security to keep vandals from striking again.
Last summer, Fort Payne Main Street received a $10,000 grant from the Community Foundation of Northeast Alabama to build a meditation park.
It is located on the north end of the Alabama Walking Park and provides visitors with an opportunity to reflect, sit and enjoy the park’s Life Garden.
However, vandals have already hit twice. A fountain in the park had to be removed in August after it was damaged.
Now, funding is on the way for additional security cameras following approval from the Fort Payne City Council.
The cameras will be an extension of the current security network, which already covers the nearby Walking Park.
