The topic of a tree ordinance came up at Wednesday night's Legal Committee meeting. Ellen Thurston, committee chair, wondered out loud about the fate of the Tree Board that was created during Dick Tracy's term as mayor (2006-2007), when Rainer Judd chaired the Public Works Committee. Legal Committee member Dick Goetz, alderman from the Fifth Ward, responded to Thurston's query, "In the first place, I don't like trees, so don't expect me to remember."
Sign the tree petition. It turns out there is still time.
