Unfortunately, due to the deer problem in much of Freeport, people will no longer plant tulips since the deer will eat all of them. Of course, the deer now will eat anything that grows. Where have all those beautification people gone, and the $50,000 that Mayor Gaulrapp gave them a few years ago? Let’s fill the food pantries with venison home grown in Freeport! The deer have done thousands (more than $250,000 which is a conservative estimate) of dollars of damage to expensive plantings in this community, but no one seems to care in Freeport. I say this – No public funds for landscaping in Freeport until the deer problem is addressed!
