On Monday, October 6th a group from Mrs. Benik's 3rd grade class at Forest came to City Hall to discuss the proposed deer ordinance with Mayor Kennedy. The children petitioned the Mayor to try and think of another way to solve our deer problem without harming them. They are currently learning about petitions and this was a great learning experience for them. Thank you to all who were involved!
