LIVERMORE — The town will have to pay for the removal of graffiti on a portable toilet at Brettuns Pond.

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

Someone spray-painted three sides of the 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 Potti from Nickerson’s Septic Tank Cleaning Service 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.

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

Some fireworks have also been launched from the Brettuns Pond beach, he said.

He learned about this Tuesday, after a large amount of fireworks — some used, some unused — 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, Schaub said, and no one has been given permission to do so.
