Hagerstown park officials have heard some citizen proposals to discourage ducks and geese from nesting at City Park, including feed containing birth control, a city official said.
Local attorney Wiley Rutledge presented the Parks Board with a petition last Thursday signed by 1,093 people who were opposed to proposals to ban feeding or shake eggs, said Department of Public Works officials.
Public Works Manager Doug Stull has said there are too many ducks and Canada geese at the park. The more than 300 geese are destroying the soil area and ripping plants out, he has said.
