THE WEEK IN REVIEW
Morris Lake is 45 inches below spillway. Water restrictions are still in place.

Work continues with KKMPR on the new “Opening a New Business” marketing brochure.

The RPM groundbreaking ceremony was well attended this week – we wish everyone the best of luck on this most important downtown project!

The Town has been advised by Schifano Construction that milling and paving will begin around the Square starting Monday evening.

Crews will be mobilizing on Monday-Wednesday for the Fox Hollow watermain project with work to commence on Thursday.

Have a great weekend! Let’s Go Rangers!
Yours in Service,
