Public Works Discussions at Council Meetings 

The town council is receiving information from its town engineer on having a town-wide comprehensive drainage study done. This study would encompass the entire town and boundaries. The study costs less than $100,000 and if approved by council would take a few months to complete, then the town engineer would provide a presentation back to council and residents.

The town engineer is also providing information to council in preparation for going out for bids to pave and repair several asphalt streets. The town engineer has provided a preliminary cost estimate of $800,000 for asphalt streets on the current list of paving and repair projects for this fiscal year.

The town council meetings are held on the first and third Monday of each month, unless it’s a holiday, then the meeting moves to Tuesday. All are welcome to attend your town council meetings. You can also watch the meetings online by going to the town website

Have a great February and Happy Valentine’s Day!
