'Waive Water Fees at Garden City Bird Sanctuary'
On behalf of the Garden City Bird Sanctuary, Robert Alvey of Garden City, sanctuary president since its inception, requested the village permanently waive water fees at the site. He cited several reasons, including the fact that water is used sparingly, but as needed, during dry conditions. Alvey called on trustees at the last village board meeting but received a letter of denial from the village shortly thereafter.
