Crews work on unsafe tree in Index park

We were out on a photo shoot recently and on the way home a great photo opportunity was right in front of us at Doolittle Park.

Sean “Rib” was a busy guy supervising the splitting up of the forked maple tree that has caused concerns for the town for some time now.

The busiest thing Rib stated, will be fixing the divots from the large parts of the tree hitting the ground.

Is that Bill Cross supervising Rib, our Town Maintenance Supervisor? I thought he was retired and one thing is for sure. Rib is doing a fine job of keeping the maintenance running smoothly. He has had his share of emergencies in town since taking over.
