HORSESHOE BAY — The City Council Nov. 29 declared open war on cedars within the city limits on undeveloped property — but offered a reprieve for a select few.

"I make the motion that we initiate a plan to eradicate cedar trees over the next three to five years at the city’s expense," Councilman Jeff Robinson said.

The council unanimously passed the measure, which members say is needed to cut down on the danger of wildfire. Robinson introduced the idea during the October council meeting, and followed through this week on his promise to bring it up again.

Not everyone agreed with the council.
