When City Manager George Lahanas took office three years ago, he was surprised to learn how important deer management is to residents. “One big conversation has been about vacant buildings downtown,” said, Lahanas. “The No. 2 conversation, no matter where I am, people want to talk about deer. So, this is obviously an important issue.”

More than two dozen citizens attended the city sponsored deer management meeting at the Bailey community center.
