Bulk Items/White Goods Pick Up
Start planning for the second and final bulk pick up of the year on Tuesday, October 29. For more information about items for bulk pick up, CLICK HERE. Take advantage of this free service (except mattresses and box springs- $5 each!) offered by the Town.

Town Hall Progress Update
Town Hall construction progress remains ahead of schedule despite what appeared to be a “slow” week. Next week big things will happen! Roof trusses were delivered this week and a crane will be brought in early next week to set the trusses. Framers will be busy with the trusses and roof sheathing for a few weeks.

Don’t forget to stop by and take a look at the sample board with material, stone and paint samples. It’s an exciting time.
