The recent vandalism to the entrance to the Hastings compost site on West State Road has been repaired and the gate system is working well, deputy City Manager Jerry Czarnecki said Monday.
Ironically, he said complaints he is getting are not about getting in, it’s about getting out. The system works on motion and weight, he said.
“There’s a line painted on the ground. Park there and the gate will open; it takes a few seconds,” Czarnecki said.
The city is purchasing a new larger capacity camera for the site to deter further vandalism.
