FDL Public Works Director Jordan Skiff Responds To EAB In FDL County
City of Fond du Lac officials were notified last week the Emerald Ash Borer has been located within Fond du Lac County, indicating that the destructive beetle is several miles closer than previously known. This will likely accelerate the City’s plans for a public information initiative and the preemptive removal of many ash trees from the City parks and terraces. Residents may be given an opportunity to have public ash trees in their area remain by expressing an interest in paying to have the ash trees treated at the appropriate time.
A public information meeting with the DNR had already been scheduled for Monday, October 28th at 4:30 p.m. in the Legislative Chambers of the City/County Government Center. Due to the discovery of the EAB location within the County, residents are encouraged to attend the informational meeting. Further information can be obtained from the City’s Public Works Department at 322-3472. More on the EAB.
