Council postpones decision on trees
Published 03/02/2010, The Daily Republic
The Mitchell City Council decided Monday evening at City Hall to postpone a decision on the fate of a wooded, city-owned lot along North Harmon Drive near Lake Mitchell.
The council voted 7-0, with one member absent, to table the issue until the first meeting in August at the latest. The vote was taken following a lively half-hour hearing at which a group of about 100 people — supported by about 1,280 petition signatures — tried and failed to convince the council to protect the property and its trees.
