LISTEN: Ratepayers likely to foot the bill for waterfront vandalism

Wellington’s Mayor says ratepayers could pay for some of the reckless vandalism of a beloved water sculpture on the city’s waterfront.

The Len Lye water sculpture was snapped off by a man who was swinging on the artwork yesterday.

The sculpture was about to be turned on for summer after a three hundred thousand dollar repair process.

Mayor Justin Lester says while the council does have insurance, ratepayers could foot part of the bill.
