Word of local tree flap reaches Dayton
The Dayton Daily News carried a report on the Yellow Springs tree removal controversy in its Sunday edition this week.
A quote from the article:
"[Village Council member Karen] Wintrow said recently appointed Village Manager Laura Curliss proposed the downtown upgrades as an extension of a sidewalk work Lamont Excavating started on another section of Xenia Avenue in May.
She said there clearly should have been better communication and dialogue with villagers.
'That’s not the way things are done here,” Wintrow said. “We are a very deliberate community.'”
