Sinkholes around pond #2 walking path

There are sinkholes in two areas on the walking path around pond #2. Some of the residents have speculated that this is the result of muskrats. The board has taken the following actions:

  1. Contacted a DEC certified expert who was recommended by the town to evaluate our problem.  The expert concluded that these sinkholes are not the result of muskrat activity.  Instead, he believes that this is the result of former tree root systems that are decomposing.
  2. We have contracted a company to repair these areas.  The damaged areas will be excavated, filled and compacted with crush and run stone, and repaved with new asphalt.  This work is dependent on weather and should be completed within a few weeks.
