A voice vote was taken and the motion carried. This bid notice will be published May 10th and May 17th in the Pioneer News with a scheduled bid opening of May 31st.

 

PEAR TREE MAINTENANCE PROPOSAL

Director Wittmann spoke to Anne Roberts and she recommended that we contact a certified Arborist. Director Wittmann met with Gray Tree Service yesterday and he looked at the tree and advised that the damage is more profound than it really looks. He advised that doing anything to the roots is a temporary fix. The only permanent fix is removing the tree. He estimated that the cost to remove the tree, stump, pulling up the pavers and grind down the roots would be $500. Trustee Magnelli spoke to his landscape architect at his work and he advised it should have never been planted there and shaving the roots is not recommended. His recommendation was to take the tree out. Director Wittmann also contacted Davis Tree Care and Care of Trees to look at the tree. Trustee Sticha mentioned a chess table would be nice out there. The Board would like to keep the tree removal separate from the landscaping RFP.
