THE Kokopo-Vunamami Urban local level government in the Kokopo district of East New Britain has warned people not to destroy public properties or they will be prosecuted or penalised.
KVU LLG issued a statement in Kokopo yesterday announcing that the LLG would now be looking at penalties for unnecessary damage.
These properties include bus stops, lamp posts, street lights, street signs and flower beds.
It is understood that offenders will be responsible for the total cost of damage they cause.
KVU LLG issued the warning after it supervised the renovation of a bus stop in town that was recently hit by a vehicle driven by a drunk driver.  The LLG confirmed yesterday that to build a bus stop in Kokopo town would cost about K15,000 and  putting up a new street pole would cost about K7000.
The LLG confirmed that it has issued notices to four offenders for destroying public properties in Kokopo and has given them one month to fix the damage.
