Thanks scouts for park trail improvements, questions brush piles

To the Editor,I walk the trails so many times both at the community center and at the Burt Street entrance. First, I would like to congratulate the Eagle Scouts who put bridges across bad spots and made it so much nicer to walk the trails. That was one of the best gifts to the community, and I applaud them for all they have done. My other thought was, what are they doing on the trail off Burt Street? Brush and trees were removed on both sides of the trail and the brush was stacked way high along the side of the path. If there is a good reason, I think it could be shared with everyone in the community. I sure hope they don’t leave it like it is, as the natural beauty has been disturbed. I do see a couple of log benches there as if to hold some kind of get-together. An explanation on all of this would be very appreciated by everyone who walks the trails I’m sure.Betty RameyTecumseh[Editor’s note: The Herald announced three times, as recently as Oct. 31, 2013, the activities involving the Eagle Scout project, which is expected to be completed by the end of this month. The city is scheduled to mulch the brush, which will be used on the trails.]
