Madison County Highway Department removes three dozen trees on East Lake Road

Many Cazenovia residents were alarmed last week when Madison County Highway Department crews showed up on East Lake Road in front of Owera Vineyards and started strip-cutting trees of all sizes along the roadside. Some people were concerned at the loss of vegetation done with no public notification and no public explanation; East Lake Road neighbors feared that their controversy with Owera Vineyards had taken a new twist by the winery receiving special treatment by having its private/business viewshed improved using taxpayer dollars.
