City staff is fed up with a string of vandalism at Lodi parks that is putting a strain on an already tight budget.

On Aug. 19, vandals at Katzakian Park set a fire in a trash can, torching the bathroom. The fire, which happened at 6:30 a.m. that Sunday, burned the stucco and damaged the roof, said Jeff Hood, interim director of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services. The fire department had to put out the fire, and the restrooms are still closed. Earlier this month, people pulled down dusk-to-dawn security lighting in the youth area of Lodi Lake. The city had just finished an $8,000 repair after the same thing happened two months ago.
