Ithaca (WENY) - For months leaders in Ithaca have been looking for the vandals who stole the letters outside Ithaca City hall. Mayor Svante Myrick says the sign has been incomplete for months. Police have not been able to track down who stole the large silver letters "I" "C" and "N" "Y" from the front wall of city hall. Mayor Myrick is asking for the thieves to return the stolen property otherwise it will cost city tax dollars to replace them.
“It's one of those things where you think, it's life and we should suck it up and order a new sign, but these are tax payer dollars at a time when we don't have a lot to spare,” says Myrick. “So it's a good world full of good people so I thought maybe we put the word out that hey shananigans are shananigans we've all been there so if you bring it back we'd really appreciate it.”
Mayor Myrick says they are checking surveillance videos to try and catch the thieves
