Re: Ell Pond

There were indeed a fair number of volunteers who did the best they could (with the heat adding to the brutal conditions), but it's an almost impossible/endless task to expect it to be performed by "hand pulling". My understanding (and I could easily be wrong) is that the company, whose name escapes me now, that performed the work basically has a 'monopoly' in this state. They did remove a substantial amount, but, as one can easily see, not enough! I have not seen the contract with the City, but it obviously must have been "x" number of days for $50K, whether the job was done or not.
