I had requested that city staff detail issues with the 2nd street NW project in Kutzky Park. Many neighbors were furious at the needless destruction of generational trees by a careless Lametti & Sons. The city is not 100% innocent on this either and we have created a tree protection policy as a result of our issues. We also instuitued a number of other improvements based on lessons learned. However if all of staffs findings are shown to be correct I am not comfortable with Lametti & Sons continuing to work in Rochester. This report indicates gross neglect by Lametti & Sons. Interestingly they had performed quality work for Rochester in the past, but this project was not handled in an acceptable manner.
I have also requested via staff that Lametti & Sons be given an opportunity to respond and will also offer Kutzky Park an opportunity to respond.
