JAMESTOWN – A representative from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation will be sharing details about population management for urban deer during a work session of the Jamestown City Council tonight.
The DEC official will be on hand to present a report to the City Council on deer management.
The presentation comes at the request of Jamestown City Councilman Andrew Liuzzo (R-At Large), who recently said something needs to be done to address the growing deer numbers in the city. Liuzzo is pushing for limited bow hunting in certain areas of the city to help manage the deer population. The proposal has received mixed reaction on social media, with some residents being in favor while others feeling the city should consider other options.
Monday’s meeting, which begins at 7:30 p.m., is open to the public and will take place in the mayor’s conference room on the fourth floor of city hall.
