Mystery Dinner Theatre tickets on sale starting June 29; Walden Lake golf course has a new mowing company and more.

Maintaining Walden Lake

Walden Lake Golf Course will have fresh lawns once more now that a new mowing contractor has been hired to continue caring for the property. City Manager Bill McDaniel said the owner of the company took a tour with the code enforcement manager and has plans to keep the property in tip-top condition.

The contractor plans to have at least one member of his team on the course mowing every day to keep up with the large property. Today’s Bank hired the new team to keep the property up to code. During the tour they also realized some of their larger equipment will be unable to access all the locations that need mowing on the property.

McDaniel said the city was alerted to several dead trees in front of the country club on Holland Drive. Because of the dead trees’ proximity to the right-of-way, the city removed them on June 26 and cleared the space.
