New Survey  The Planning Commission is working on a new resident survey that will be ready soon.    This survey is the first that will become an annual survey in the coming years.  The purpose of this communication is to help your elected officials work on projects that are important to you and to determine a road map for our future.  We hope to have this survey out to you by the end of June, if not sooner.  Please look for it in the mail we want to hear from you.

Public Works Report

Public works will be doing maintenance throughout the summer in the streets and Right-of-ways. Please drive safely around the crew.

Park restrooms are now open and we are already experiencing vandalism.  Please make sure that we all do are part in keeping them clean and usable for the public.  We want to make sure that they are available for everyone to use.  Remember to contact Town Hall and let us know when you have events at the park; this will ensure that the restrooms will be open and sprinklers will be turned off.  Also, please be sure to clean up after your event.
