About 8:40 p.m. on Oct. 29, Public Safety became aware of damage to the roof of Maurer Gym caused by strong winds from Hurricane Sandy.
At that time, Public Safety officers were unable to assess the damage because of the strength of the storm. Officers did notify Facilities of the damages.
On Oct. 31 at 2 p.m., Public Safety returned to the gym and noticed that metal and bricks had fallen from the roof. Facilities came later that day to begin repairing the roof and assessing the cost of repair. Currently, the swim team has relocated its practices to a pool in Cherry Hill until the roof is fully mended.
Stolen stop sign
The new parking lot at Westminster Choir College (WCC) is missing a stop sign thanks to Sandy and a mischievous individual.
Princeton Borough Police notified Public Safety of a stop sign that was uprooted from the new WCC parking lot. The officer said that the wind from the storm threw the sign about 75 yards. The police officer also said that a WCC student observed a car stop, and a person get out and take the sign.
The Princeton police was able to get identification for the car in question and the cost to replace the sign will be about $200.
A Daly’s employee found an unwelcome surprise in the Daly’s parking lot while taking out the trash on the morning of Oct. 30.
The male staff member called Public Safety at about 8:30 p.m. and said that the winds from the hurricane caused a piece of plywood to fly off the roof of Daly’s and hit the driver’s side door of his car.
The Public Safety officers took pictures of the damage. The cost of repair has not yet been determined.
