Grateful for council leadership

Oct 7, 2020
Living on Lakeshore Drive has meant weeks of carrying everything to and from the parked car half a block away, with weeks still to go! While that may sound pretty awful, it’s given me a day-to-day close up on the work. Lo and behold, what seems like almost pointless digging and refilling and...

Highway crew working hard

Sep 30, 2020
I would like to congratulate all the guys and gals who are working on the Highway 61 reconstruction project. They are all hard workers.
