'Dear Neighbors and Interested Community Members:

Please note the executed contract amendment to confirm the Village’s policy that we are not authorizing the killing of geese.

We are moving forward with the program to find nest locations and oil eggs to prevent them from hatching.

Best regards,

Richard Slingerland
Village Manager'
