Friendly Reminder:

Geese mitigation efforts are underway by the property owners of the pond. This mitigation is not under city control nor under city jurisdiction. The Department of Natural Resources has been guiding the efforts to control the geese population at the pond with the property owners.  Surrounding property owners can be notified by Mike Petersen prior to any noise makers or scare shots. Laser lighting, swan decoys, and coyote decoys are also part of the mitigation.  The geese population became overbearing to the natural composite of the pond. These efforts are to keep the population to a few geese, so the fish and the pond can return to a healthier environment. And to minimize any harmful impact to the geese.   If there are any questions by residents in the area of the pond, please contact Mike Petersen.
