INDIANA NEWS: City Creates Community Deer Task Force

Involving the community at the earliest stages is smart politically. It fosters civic engagement and shares the burden of responsibility of decisions.

A southern Indiana city is looking for ways to deal with worries over more deer showing up in urban and suburban areas.

The Bloomington City Council on Wednesday unanimously approved creating a community deer task force following complaints from residents that the animals pose a safety risk.

Councilman Dave Rollo says he hopes the group will present its recommendations by September.

In September, a petition with 500 signatures was presented to City Council members and Monroe County commissioners asking them to create the task force.
