Contractors started work on removing the remains of the boardwalk and pond-dipping platform on July 2nd. All the stumps of over a hundred plastic posts embedded four feet into the ground have so far been pulled out and taken off-site. The fire-destroyed pond-dipping platform in the field corner has also been removed. Following a break of a few days the contractors expect to return to dig out the pond that will become a feature at the end of the short section of boardwalk that the arsonists failed to reduce to ash and melted plastic.
