Water, specifically flooding caused by Hurricane Ivan in the later part of September, was the main topic of the October 21 meeting of the Hallstead Boro Council. Several guests were present, all who had been (and still are) affected by the storms ravages. One reported that he had been in the process of removing downed trees from the nearby creek, trying to do what he could to get the water flowing in its proper channel, when he was visited by representatives from the Fish and Game Commission. They were investigating a report that the individual had cut down the trees and dumped them into the creek, and were prepared to arrest him or levy any number of fines. But, when they realized what the situation actually was, they did not take any further action.

A spokesman in the office of state Attorney General Gerald Pappert said the AG will assign one of his deputy lawyers to prosecute the case as was done in the first trial.
