(Water) Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts


The Ayer Conservation Commission asked Lycott Environmental to provide a quote for adding the treatment of Watershield and White and Yellow Lilies to the existing contract that is in place for the treatment of Fanwort and Milfoil on Flannagan Pond in the Spring of 2012.

That is good news and I am thrilled that the ConsCom is proactive regarding this issue.

Lycott came back with the quote and my enthusiasm was dulled with the revelation of dollar figure.  It will cost an additional $18,800 to treat the Watershield and the Lilies. This is 60% of the figure already contracted, so it is far too large for a simple change order.

Becky has added this item to the Conservation Commission’s agenda for Thursday evening’s meeting (October 20th) this week at Ayer Town Hall. I am eager to hear what the members say. I hope to see some of you there.

Thanks again to the Commission for looking ahead on this matter.

Some of the readers may be confused by the title of the post, but I’ll bet a few of you will know what it is.  If so, pipe in on the comments.

    So, no one rose to the challenge of what the title of the post was about. No one even Googled it; if they had, they would have figured the answer. The post’s title is from a fantastic Bob Dylan song from his album Blood on the Tracks. The winner would have received a draft Guinness at Thirty-One Main. Since I was the only one with the answer Phil bought me the Guinness. Now take a few minutes and enjoy the song.
