City to discuss the issue of deer roaming


HUDSON OAKS — Discussion of the city’s deer population and how to handle it is on the agenda for Thursday night’s city council meeting.

Assistant City Administrator Patrick Lawler said the issue came up because residents expressed concerns about seeing deer close to their houses. Lawler said there is no reason for concern, but the council wished to give city officials ideas on how to handle the problem.

“Do we want to send out notices in the water bill or exactly how do we want to let residents know what’s going on?” Lawler said. “That’s what we’ll be discussing.”

The council will also hear a final report on the Boomin 4th event, which was a success as people from all over the county took part in the area’s first fireworks event in a couple years.

“We’ve already signed up all our sponsors for next year’s event,” Lawler said.

The council will also discuss the upcoming 2012-13 budget. A similar discussion was held during June’s council meeting.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m.
