Beavers Causing Damage, Trapping Planned

Single-family homeowners living near the Jardin fountain should be aware that the City of Hugo has contacted a trapper to solve a beaver problem.  Beavers have been destroying trees near the pond behind homes near the south west corner of Victor Gardens (near the Lino Lakes border). An experienced trapper will place traps underwater (approved by the DNR).  Please be aware that these traps pose a potential hazard for people. Scott Anderson, City of Hugo's new Public Works Director advises residents (and any pets) to stay out of the water near these areas until the beaver is trapped.
