Question:There are still more trees along 106th Street that should have been cut by the Town Employees when they did the rest of the trees, why was the job not finished? Why are the Agendas and Minutes NOT posted on this site for George Lake? I am sure there are a lot of people interested in the Lake District.

Answer:The Town removed the dead trees. The live trees help hold the bank of the lake from erosion. The Lake District questions need to be addressed to your Lake District Board.
