Thank you for you trying to address the problem with the overflow drain at Caruth Park. I see you added rocks and netting and I appreciate your help so much. Sadly, some of the ducklings have fallen into the drain again. Is there anyone that could help? Thank you.
Thank you so much for adding the rocks and netting around the drain. I'm so thankful you are trying to help the ducklings. Unfortuantely they have slipped down the drain again. 🙁
WHEN are our playgrounds opening?
Why is the tax payers UP pool opening being delayed until July 1st when Gov Abbott specifically listed pools as of May 8th?
