Parking Enforcement Officers continued Thursday to repair parking meters that were intentionally damaged. Parts for the meters were ordered Wednesday, and shipped overnight after at least 125 damaged meters were discovered damaged Wednesday morning. The damaged meters were on the square, along 6th Street, and Madison, as well as other areas downtown.

The meters were covered with pink and green paint, and expanding foam had been sprayed into the coin slots. Bloomington Police Capt. Ryan Pedigo said he didn’t have an update on the investigation, but he anticipated the meters would be repaired quickly.
