The Ripon Lions Club was recognized at Tuesday's Ripon City Council meeting for donation of trees.

According to Public Works Director James Pease, a total of 14 trees valued at $1,600 will be installed at the Ripon Community Center / Acacia Park to "help screen and fill in the south side of the park," he said.

That's the southern fence line adjacent to the Bernard A. Trucking property.

Councilman Mike Restuccia applauded the Lions Club for the donation.

Pease, in his report to the Council, said minor irrigation adjustments at the Community Center park will be needed for ongoing watering of the newly planted trees.

His Public Works Department will handle that along with pruning, as needed, for the future.

"These tasks will be performed as part of the regular maintenance activities for the Community Center," Pease added.
