What project do you think the City should do next? With the winding down of the Water Improvement Project a new project needs to be considered. There are plastic gas lines that need replaced and gas lines from the Southern Star meter to the town border station that need reburied. The streets need attention. Building a multi-purpose storm shelter that would house the Community Center, City Hall, and the Library. Can you think of any other things that you would like to see the City do?
Name the Lake? - Currently the lake is called Uniontown School Pond. Do you want to keep that name for the lake/pond or would you like to suggest something different. We only had one suggestion for a new name, please let us know what you think.
The Maintenance Department is now working ten hour days Monday through Thursday on a trial basis. Keep that in mind when you wish to have the maintenance department shut off or turn on utilities.
The Water Improvement Project is finished. If you are still experiencing dirt settling where they put in the pipes or meters, please contact City Hall. The contractor will come back to fix these areas once we get all of them located.
