Council will get report
on geese at Lodi Lake
The Lodi City Council will receive a report Wednesday from Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Director Jeff Hood on the Canada geese at Lodi Lake Park.
More than 125 Canada geese are leaving behind droppings at Lodi Lake and the surrounding area, according to the City Council agenda.
Although the birds are federally protected, there are no methods of dissuading them from coming to Lodi Lake that do not require permits from state or federal agencies, city officials said.
Wednesday’s meeting begins at 7 p.m. at Carnegie Forum, 305 W. Pine St.
