Waterfowl Management

Excessive populations of Mute Swans and Canadian Geese can be a determent to aquatic plant life, other waterfowl, plants and even a danger to humans in some cases. The Water Management Board's policy, which has been approved by Village Council, for managing their populations is to follow Federal, State and Local waterfowl management policies and procedures.
