The City was under the impression that reseeding of the water pipeline replacement was part of the Water Improvement Project, but learned otherwise and the contractor will not be reseeding. The Council has approved to provide fescue seed for those areas. Property owners will have to put down the seed themselves, but the seed will be available at City Hall. If you would like seed, please bring a container for the seed. It can be picked up during normal City Hall hours.
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?
