When municipal hall reopens after renovations the yard will also be in order.

Parks crews tacked the massive oak in front of the building, alongside the usual weeding, on July 8. With the building closed, less foot traffic afforded a good opportunity to take care of pruning.

The reno has a $1.3-million budget – including furniture and a $270,600 contingency fund – in the district’s 2020 financial plan. Work is expected to finish up this winter.
