  • Cemetery is now cleaned
  • Boom Mowing of the ditches is coming anytime in the next couple of months. This is the mower with a long arm that reaches the full depth and width of the ditch.  All shrubs and trees will be mowed.  This is to keep the ditches functioning to remove the water from harming the roadbeds.  The water is not moving away from most roadbeds at the present time.  Please remove all personal items from the ditches.  The boom mower will likely harm them if they remain.
  • Gym lot: The Gym parking lot is now the preferred helicopter landing site.  If parking your car and leaving the Gym area, please park your car on Wee Avenue.
  • Gym Users: PLEASE change into gym shoes prior to using the gym.  PLEASE put the equipment away after use.  Recently there have been many mornings when the Town Officials have come in and found balls lying around on the floor or stage, and the pickle ball net has not been returned to its carrier.  There is no employee available to pick up after your use.  There is no fee for use of the gym.  You are responsible for picking up after your use.
