Garden Team: Daffodil Hill – DOT weed whacked the hill side so clean up is not necessary. There was discussion about not maintaining Daffodil Hill anymore. Maybe find another group to take it over?

This is $35 above their budget. Pat motioned to approve this expenditure; Sandra Bird seconded. Approved.
