Boy Scout Troop 697 was recognized by the Lowell Town Council for their recent efforts toward beautifying the south Lake County community. Town Council President Edgar Corns says the MS4, or Stormwater Coordinator for Lowell, Greg White, his son is in the Boy Scouts, and the group recently cleaned up a drainage ditch. "It was really littered," Corns told the Region News Team, "and it took a lot of work. You know, car tires and oil cans and just every kind of thing that you could think of." Corns says the ditch is behind the Lowell Library, in between houses and the Lowell Cemetery. The town council presented the troop with a certificate of appreciation at the most recent council meeting.
