Deer Culling


The expensive deer culling was stopped for a year and now they want to restart it...

At the recent Safety Meeting they approved $30K to use a thermal count of the deer, despite an alternative method costing only $5K.

This year, as before they plan on counting Glenwillow deer.  No one seems to know why we'd pay extra to count deer that aren't in our city.  Will Glenwillow be paying for part of the count?  Will they kick into the $150K that will undoubtedly reduce their deer population?  UNLIKELY?

Finance allocated $150K (only $100K was requested) for an unknown plan before any study was done.  Doesn't seem like prudent fiscally conservative finance.
