         Cleanup Day, Saturday, October 4, 11 a.m.    Meet at parking lot.  DPW will deliver woodchips to Lowell Street at the Lexington border.  About a dozen Girl Scouts, with adult leaders, will come at 12:30 to help with trash pickup.
         Water weeds:  Cori (Con Com) will asks Aquatic Control Technologies to check on weeds in all three major water bodies, and will find out who got last year's report.  Teresa at DPW should have a copy. 
         Accounting for the waterbodies fund should be kept in a format that is easily accessible by all concerned, such as the Con Com and the Reservoir and Spy Pond Committees.
         A Lexington abutter is planning to replace an old house with a new one and rectify problems caused by the previous owner - trash dumping and encroaching beyond the property line.
         The last replacement trees were planted in July.  The trees are doing well except for two which kept getting knocked over, apparently by teenagers wanting more room for their games.  DPW replanted these a couple of times and then gave up and removed them.
         A "Responsible Dog Owners Day" is planned at the Res beach on October 25, 9 am - 2 pm, by GoPlay, an indoor dog play group run by two women.  It will be like a mini Town Day for dog owners with vendors, information, etc. [Event cancelled for a possible Spring date.]
