Re: “Medicine Hat has a weed problem,” June 8
I agree wholeheartedly with Ken Pirie’s letter to the editor. I have been fighting with the Parks Department to clean up the weeds and overgrown trees and shrubs around the Northlands storm pond for years.
It is a weed-infested disgrace with overgrown underbrush and trees.
This particular pond is home to ducks and geese and numerous other species of birds. It is a popular spot for avid photographers and onlookers alike. The problem is that the surrounding pond is so overgrown with weeds and shrubs that the public cannot enjoy the everyday goings-on on the pond. There are also numerous school classes that come and study the pond, but it’s getting harder even to see that there is water in the pond.
The city wants to develop Brier Run with nice walking trails and ponds.
This picture already exists across Division Avenue at the Northlands storm pond only if the city would clean it up. Please take a long look at this and clean it up. For those of you that use and enjoy the trails and the pond and want to enjoy what goes on there, please make an effort to call City Hall and make your displeasure known.
