Theft of manhole covers, a growing concern
[Letter to the editor]
Nearly every single steel manhole cover has been stolen, sold to scrap yards and replaced. It is unthinkable that scrap yards would buy these stolen covers, as it the property of the municipality.
This issue is becoming a nuisance in the central business district (CBD) area. Manholes cannot be replaced on a regular basis.
I would like to suggest to rather make the covers of concrete instead of steal… still effective but worthless to scoundrels.
