JAMESTOWN – It’s no secret that Jamestown has struggled to control the local deer population. Now, the Deer Management Work Group is offering residents the opportunity to be part of the solution.
For months now, the Deer Management Work Group has been brainstorming ways to control the deer population in the area in an environmentally-safe way. They have spoken with Cayuga Heights Mayor Linda Woodard, who dealt with the problem in the past, discussed volunteer hunts, or even hiring professionals to cull the deer, among other options.
The group had said they were hoping to have a solution by the fall. They seem to be getting closer to that target with a recent announcement, stating that they would be holding a public informational meeting on August 25th at 7:30 p.m. to discuss the problem.
The gathering will take place in the City Council Chambers on the Second Floor of the Municipal Building, located at 200 East Third Street in Jamestown. All are welcome to attend but everyone is expected to comply with whatever public health mandate has been put out regarding COVID-19 protection and prevention.
The meeting will also be streamed online at www.jamestownny.gov/live.
