City leaders are taking action to prevent unwanted fungus from growing in ponds and lakes this summer.
Leaders plan to invest fifteen thousand dollars on a herbicide treatment to fight off the algae.
They say low water levels coupled with high heat and humidity have caused the unsightly growth to blanket the water in the past.
With warm temperatures already here, the city wants to treat the problem before it gets worse.
Areas include Miller Park, Tipton Lake, Eagle Creek and Golden Eagle ponds.
"We are trying to target these ponds where we've had the greatest number of complaints," said City Manager David Hales. "See if we can be effective and what's going to be the lowest cost."
Treatment is set to begin later this year.
In the future some city leaders are considering asking homeowners to help pay for the herbicide treatment.
