Marking stakes on lawns

We have received questions about marking stakes that have appeared on lawns. This is not a township project. It seems that Lancaster City has been marking areas that they intend on conducting core samples. As we have not received plans or documentation regarding this project, we are limited with information. We will update on our website as details from the city become available.
