Parks versus public works

Dear Editor:

I guess I am a bit confused.  I read where the Parks Dept. is working on a grant program to fund tree beautification in town.

But recently, the Public Works Dept.cut all the onamental cherry trees down on Elms Blvd. When I inquired at the City Managers office, he informed me that they did it “to open up the view of the Elms.”

I guess those short 5 foot trees were blockingthe view of that little hotel!  Also, I guess the beautiful spring white blooms did not meet Parks standards.  Oh well…….

Diane & Keith Montague,

Elms Blvd. residents.
