Members of Bloomington’s deer task force say they are in the final stages of revising recommendations on how to reduce the number of human/deer interactions in the city, two years after the committee was formed.
The task force held a public teleconference with the U.S. Humane Society at 3 p.m. Monday to gather additional information before presenting their proposal to the city council and Monroe County commissioners. The committee has three additional meetings scheduled in the next three weeks to revise the draft before making its final recommendation.
Task force member Judith Granbois says she wished the group would have moved faster on the issue but says she is satisfied with the outcome.
“These are very complicated issues and it’s worth taking the time to be thorough and thoughtful about them,” she says.
Granbois declined to say what would be included in the committee’s recommendation.
