Is it proper for the taxpayers of this community to assume the liability for the dead trees that exist in the parks,
This is a question posed at the last Measure Z Oversight Advisory Committee meeting of December 8, 2016
The answer was, we know about the tree at Marna O’Brien Park, it’s located in the parking lot near the baseball fields.
The explanation as to why this tree is still present was because the city needed to study how to remove the tree from the planter without harming the irrigation system.
All that time spinning a single tree, cut the tree down eliminating the hazard. Then figure out how to remove it without tearing up too much of the planter. The irrigation system can be cut coming in and going out, capped and then replaced when a new tree is put in.
All the while they missed the original question
Being as I had posed this question in the Public Comment period of the meeting with several other questions thereby using up my three minutes and per the city’s rules of engagement I was unable to ask follow-up questions or engage in conversation. I could not ask the following with emphasis on a couple of key words.
