Chip and Seal Update
The chip and seal is now in full swing. The process should take about another week to complete. As the weather and equipment / labor demands are in a constant flux, the project timeline may move slower or faster than anticipated. We will update information as it becomes available. As the project is moving rather quickly, please move vehicles off the street. Thanks so much for your cooperation. The roads will be done when the fog coating (black tarry substance) has been laid. Once traffic control has reopened the road, you may again drive on it. Please be cognizant of your driving habits. Make sure to use sweeping turns. Sharp turns and such may damage the roads and may also kick up material onto your vehicle. Be cautious as the town/county will not be responsible for debris on cars or driveways.
The next Board of Trustees meeting will be held Tuesday, September 28th at 6:00 pm at the Community Center. Click here for Agenda.
There will be no Planning and Zoning in September. Next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, October 12 at 6:00 pm at the Community Center.
