Welcome signs throughout the Village of Malverne were stolen in the past few weeks. The sign at Dogwood and Cornwell Avenue was the most recent to be stolen.
One of the village’s welcome signs was stolen earlier this year, shortly after the village’s election. Village Trustee Tim Sullivan said that each sign costs about $800.
“I understand the novelty and excitement of any piece of Malverne, but it’s amounted to a significant economic loss of Malverne,” Sullivan said. “It’s robbing the residents of something they’ve become proud of.”
No charges will be made, and signs can be returned anonymously to any village-owned building during or after business hours.
