City Manager comment: Illegal tree removal at Dollar General site

Comm Boukari,  Re:  GREC

“I don’t like it. I wish the plant was shut down this second”

Comm Hardacre

Thanks to citizens who “caught” Dollar Gen site plan deviation on cutting down 10 trees scheduled to remain.

Comm Wilford

Asks attorney Rush to look at feasibility of legal action on Comp plan violation.

Wilford reads interesting letter aloud addressed to un-named director(s) of the TC homeowners association. We can only guess that Wilford is under pressure by Turkey Creek “leaders” to limit his comments about the biomass plant with reference to appearing on live TV at a Gainesville City commission or County meeting.

“RE: Legal action on biomass:  “We must move quickly on this matter”
