City Administrator, Tim Long, reports that agreements have been reached in two matters that have been on the Council agenda for the past few months:

1. An agreement with the driver of a car that took out a tree at Volunteer Park earlier this year will re-pay the City for the cost of removing the damaged tree and replacing it with a similar one. The re-payment plan extends over 24 months and is the result of a direct outreach made by the driver (who didn’t have insurance but accepted responsibility and accountability for the accident).

2. After receiving a letter from the City concerning how they were to remove the brush cleared on City property behind their home, a Deerbrook couple have agreed to repair the damage in the spring. A date certain to be confirmed in writing is expected later this week.
