Friday, June12, took a walk
around Buckingham Pond
Park with Bob Minard, DGS
Labor Supervisor.

We observed work that needs
to be done, including;

* coarse gravel spreading on 
foot paths to improve drainage
and traction

*removing dead trees/limbs 
overhanging the path between 
Euclid and Lenox, South aside
and stacking cut firewood at
the foot of Lenox for pick up
by neighborhood residents

* eradicating the knot weed
invasion; installing  a guard rail
or rock barrier to prevent a
run away vehicle from dropping
down on the path below the
foot of Lenox 

* cutting brush and vines in
the wooded path from Lenox 
to Holmes Dale

* controlling shoreline erosion
by planting more trees/shrubs
that are suitable for that purpose.

See earlier posts, June 10, May 21
April 7 this website.

These improvements will be made
during the course of the summer.

DGS will coordinate  with inmate
work parties provided by Sheriff
Apple to establish a work schedule
between the hours of 8:30 AM -
2 PM on selected week days.

Residents who wish to volunteer
to provide lunches/refreshments
for the inmate and city workers
are needed. Also, a volunteer
coordinator for this purpose.

Lunch time  11 AM.

 Please contact me. Thank you.
