Halloran helps with fallen tree

City Councilman Dan Halloran (R-Whitestone) was elected to the 19th Council District less than a year ago, but for me he has already moved mountains.

For too many years I have asked the city Parks Department to attend to the two giant city maple trees on my front lawn. They are huge and needed aeration and pruning. No go. At my own expense I had the trees pruned a few years ago, as I was afraid a storm would do damage to them.

On July 30, a big branch fell to the ground when a powerful thunderstorm came through the area. I contacted Halloran’s office immediately following the storm and it was as if he waved a magic wand. Within a day the tree debris was removed and the Parks Department followed up a week later by pruning the trees.

I wish to commend not only Halloran but also his staff member, John, for a job well-done. A big problem was resolved for me.
