Noble Park&rsquo;s duck house and island. Commissioners and the Mayor discussed ways to preserve the small island during Tuesday&#39;s commission meeting&nbsp;after many residents opposed the city&rsquo;s previous decision to remove&nbsp;the island due to its state of disrepair. Commissioner Gayle Kaler&nbsp;says people voiced their concern not only through emails and phone&nbsp;calls but through Facebook, as well. As of Tuesday night, the group,&nbsp;&ldquo;Save Duck Island&rdquo;, had more than 3,500 members.
