Ottawa County works to resolve tree canopy conflict - Holland, MI - The Holland Sentinel:
Two diverging interests stand out among the re-established Tree Legacy Committee members.
Public utilities and road officials want to keep their power lines and streets functional and safe, while residents want to preserve the tree-lined roads that help make the county a beautiful place to live.
But at its first meeting since 2007, all 14 members agreed the committee should be able to come up with a compromise that will satisfy everyone at the table.
“I think it’s really close — I think we could definitely accomplish it,” said Bill Bush of the Holland Board of Public Works.
