Sound Off: The medians on Kasold Drive between Trail and Peterson roads were replaced last year. New grass came up beautifully, but whoever is responsible for mowing waited until it was too tall, then mowed it and basically killed it. Who’s responsible for that breakdown and is someone going to reseed those medians?
Roger Steinbrock of the city’s marketing division provided this answer: Unfortunately, we have been experiencing a drought throughout the Midwest. This has had a huge impact on grassed medians, especially newly seeded areas. While our Parks and Recreation Department worked very hard this past summer to keep grass, plants and trees alive, it was often hard to keep newer grass plantings established. The contractor has agreed to come back and reseed this area yet this fall. They are working with the Parks and Recreation Department to accomplish that.
