HAPPENINGS IN THE CITY
For the past few years, the goose population in the City has been on the rise. This has been causing issues with the amount of goose by-product at the beach and in many yards near the lake. The City has had it in their proposed budget for the past few years to do a “Goose Round-up” but this line item has always been removed due to financial constraints. For the 2016 budget, this item was left in to see if we could get the population manageable. This past week, a group of DNR Wildlife Management employees and City employees, live captured 163 geese at the beach, golf course and City Hall to be removed from the area. There are still a few geese in the area but things should be cleaner for a while and hopefully this will help alleviate the ‘swimmers itch’ that is already present this year.
The City's Brush Dump is now open for residence to dispose of their yard waste. Only brush and leaves are accepted at the site and all leaves must be removed from any plastic bads and empty plastic bags should be placed with your household garbage.
