Regarding the use of the area, Lancaster suggested the holiday tree lighting be moved to another area. “Veteran’s Memorial Park is a special place of reverence for our residents, particularly the senior citizens, who have strong memories and feelings of respect for those who have given their lives for their country. I feel the festive holiday spirit is better served elsewhere,” he wrote. He further noted that the holiday tree is now threatened by two diseases that are apparently inhibiting its growth. Lancaster also asked the council to reconsider allowing the car shows at the Hot Dog Caboose. He asserted that these events have led to what he described as undue amounts of litter.
