MALINTA — Village council Monday approved tree trimming services with Goliath Tree Services.
Council Member Donnie Rentz, who is on the village tree committee, said a representative of the company recently visited the village and reviewed a number of trees with him. As a result, the council was presented with a list of trees in need of service.
The quote provided was for $1,600. Council double-checked its tree allocation for 2022, which was reported as $5,000.
Council members approved of the work. Rentz said he would contact the company at his earliest convenience, as it will take approximately one month before the company will be able to do the service.
