Phase II


In early June the stabilization of the shoreline with river rock rip rap began in between the heavy spring rains.  Village staff added the stone.  Commissioner Glenn Green put in extra effort to remove brush, introduce plants and bushes and nurtured and water them as necessary to insure their survival
