Paddy and me took a stroll
around the park today.

A grand day with cool temps.

Good to see Jack and Carl
back at work. They do a fine

No water and electricity for
their shed yet. The City needs
to provide these soon.

Spoke with Sheriff Apple about
obtaining a jail work party to
improve the pond park. The
Sheriff said he can do this.

Spoke with Jack and Carl
and asked them to make a list
of things they need some help

I will contact the City Forester
about tree work,  cutting vines
and planting some young
replacement trees, and stacking
firewood at several locations on
the South and West sides of the
park, for pick up and use by

Will coordinate with City Parks
and DGS regarding  resurfacing
paths with coarse gravel to provide
better drainage and footing.

Will get a guard rail or large rocks
installed at foot of Lenox, South 
side , to protect walkers, joggers
and pets from having an out of 
control vehicle drop down on them 
on the path below.

The knotweed invasion just
to the right of this location needs
to be eradicated before in spreads
throughout the park and to nearby
residential properties.

Will  try to get some blue light
emergency phones installed
at key locations around the pond.

Some residents on the South
side of Rafts Way are dumping
yard wastes in the wooded area
of the park.

Maybe the holding pond might
be fenced for safety?

for more detail.
