6:31:36 PM Bell The Park Committee would like to make the recommendation to allow the fish attractors to be installed and mapped by the Shielded and Waters group. The attractors should be installed with a minimum of 3 feet of water coverage.
6:32:01 PM Vallino Explained that the Shielded and Water organization was a group of police officers who have decided to work with troubled teens to rehabilitate them by learning about fish and fishing. The organization approached Trustee Vallino with the idea of installing the attractors in the Drost lake for free. The attractors once covered with algae will not be seen from the surface of the lake and will function to attract larger fish to the area.
6:33:36 PM Schmidt What materials are the attractors made of and how will they look?
6:33:52 PM Vallino Most are made of a vinyl material and the design looks something like a Christmas tree. The attractors will be anchored in the bottom of the lake and not visible from the surface.

6:38:21 PM Gulledge The Old Town area, which is West of Hwy 159, is in need of replacing the water lines in that service the area. The area streets have fallen into poor condition as a result of continued repair work being conducted on broken water lines.
