On Monday, crews will reseed a section of grass at Memorial Park that was vandalized over the weekend. 

Mayor Jean Stothert praised city workers for their quick work in removing a swastika. Sunday, she tweeted out a picture of the area. 

 

 

Stothert said city workers went to the park Saturday night to cover the symbol of hate, which had been burned into the grass.
