A Grinch has made its way through the Town of Comox.

On Friday, Mayor Russ Arnott posted on social media someone made their way down Comox Avenue and cut wires for the Town’s Christmas decorations.

“I just received notice that the lighting cords on all our decorative tree lights between Stewart and Port Augusta, including the Town Circle Christmas tree have been physically cut by vandals,” wrote Al Fraser, the Town’s parks superintendent through Arnott’s post.

“This unfortunate incident will be extremely time-consuming to correct. As our staff resources are limited at this time of year, we will first concentrate on fixing the Town Circle and then work back toward Stewart as time allows.”

Arnott added the Town is fortunate to have dedicated staff and noted they will do their best to the lights repaired.

“In the meantime, the Town appreciates your patience as we work on this,” he said. “If anyone has any information on who is responsible please contact the RCMP.”
