LIVERMORE, Maine — The town will have to pay for the removal of graffiti to a portable toilet.

If the purple-spray painted graffiti cannot be removed then it is possible the town may be charged to buy or replace it, administrative assistant Kurt Schaub said.

Someone spray-painted three sides of portable toilet at the public beach at Brettuns Pond, which is off Route 4, he said. The vandalism occurred the weekend of June 22 and has been reported to Maine State Police.

The town leases the Porta-Potty from Nickerson’s Septic Cleaning Services in Turner.

Schaub updated the Board of Selectpersons on the matter during a meeting Monday.

The company does not want its name on a unit that is covered with graffiti, he said Tuesday

The vandalism includes the word “Hi” and “Have fun” among other markings.

Route 4 was also spray-painted near the town’s recreation field.

There has also been some fireworks being launched from the Brettuns Pond beach, he said.

He learned about it on Tuesday after a large amount of fireworks, some used, some not, were brought to the town’s Transfer Station.

No one has the right to launch fireworks from town property unless they have been given permission, and no one has been given permission to do so, Schaub said.
