City will create task force to study best ways to handle local deer population
The City Council agreed by consent Monday night to move forward with a recommendation to create a task force to study what to do to with the local deer population.
There are no specific recommendations now, but council members agreed it's an issue the city needs to take a closer look at.
"I took a walk out there last fall and there is a swath of damage as wide as a street through the woods and meandering through people's property taking care of all their landscaping," said Council President Eugene Jankowski. "There's a path of dead vegetation all the way out to the edge of the city."
City Manager Jason Molino is expected to present a plan for creating a task force and providing it with directions on the scope and timing of its work.
The same thing happened when the white man stole his land from the native Americans. What did you expect and what can anyone, or Jason Molino, do now except to say kill them? Unless you know a good wild deer herder.
Urban hunting sounds fun.
Invite them over for dinner.
Then, eat them!
maybe the city could purchase a study from another city that has already done one, at a discount price of course. may be able to google it. did somebody say we have 92 grand from vibrant Batavia ? ..... George, careful there, i'm a white man and I didn't steal anybody's land.
My first thought was 'does this need a task force study'? Then Spaulding brought some common sense to the discussion. I'm sure this problem has been dealt with numerous times, in numerous communities like Batavia. Besides, Isn't it the responsibility of the City Council members to undertake the work necessary to find the best approach for fixing the problem, rather than simply delegating the work to a group of volunteers?
