Mulching in the park
The loud, abrasive sounds emanating from Lakeview Park today came from the mulcher. Parks and Rec used the 120-horsepower device to grind up a lot of dead wood and some invasive bushes:
As a result, more park grounds are accessible and free of dead trees, always a potential fire hazard.
The next step will be treating the highly invasive Potato Vine with a chemical to make it go away.
The contractor on the job was emphatic in saying the chemical is in no way noxious to pets or wildlife.
