Vandals have damaged a Naracoorte Lucindale Council works project for the fifth time in a month.
The first reported and most significant damage to a project was to new kerbing on Robertson St on the evening of September 18, which caused significant project delays and cost up to $20,000 to rectify.
Other instances of damage have followed, with the most recent to a new footpath network on Butler Terrace.
In a social media post, the council said of the damage: "It is unfortunate the works the staff have constructed has been vandalised for the fifth time in under four weeks.
"This unnecessary vandalism results in additional time and costs to complete the project. Council also remind all residents to comply with all roadwork signage to ensure the safety of all road users."
CEO Trevor Smart said after the first reported vandalism: "The vandalism has impacted on council but also businesses in the area and residents."
It's unknown what time delays or extra costs resulted from the latest damage.
