The Village of Yellow Springs street crew worked late into the night on Sunday, Feb. 24, to clear a 50-foot-tall evergreen uprooted in high winds earlier in the day.
Johnnie Burns and his crew appeared in the middle of the road on Fairfield Pike, where the water had mysteriously stopped running. They first had to figure out what the problem was — was a pipe broken or frozen? — and then had to locate the pipe. It wasn’t easy.
The Village will contact those who swam in the Gaunt Park pool from last Wednesday to its closing late Friday afternoon to alert them that herbicides had been applied inappropriately Wednesday morning to the grass around the pool.
The Yellow Springs Village Council will hold an emergency meeting on Sunday morning, June 16 at 9 a.m. in Council chambers to discuss the pool closing yesterday due to herbicide application.
On June 12, 2013, the Village staff applied an herbicide to the clover in the grassy area around the pool, forcing closure.
By the time he came to work as a Village crewman 19 years ago, Dave Conley was already a veteran of infrastructure maintenance.
