The impact of vandalism's cost on the community continues to rise after the toilets at Laurieton Oval were targeted over the long weekend.

The Port Macquarie-Hastings community is being encouraged to join the fight against future incidents by keeping an eye out and reporting any information to police.

A spokesperson from Port Macquarie-Hastings Council said vandalism costs ratepayers thousands of dollars each year.

This is money which could be invested into future projects such as roads, sporting facilities, parks and other community facilities.

The toilet block at Bruce Porter Reserve has been repeatedly targeted.

The block was also vandalised on June 12, 2018. At the time it was estimated to cost $30,000 to repair.

If you have any information which might assist the investigation please call Laurieton Police on 6559 9044.
