- V-ditches: I will be assembling a project description for the
V-dicth work along Park Drive and sending it to the County
at the end of the month of June
- Volunteer Projects: I'll be calling for volunteer groups in
the coming month or two to work on the following:
- Park Drive Sink Hole: We'll need to install a concrete box
to improve the drainage in this area.
- Removal of Chain-link fence: Michael Saunders has informed
me that the owners of the chain-link fence on Park
Drive are willing
to have it removed and recycled. We'll need to
get a crew together to remove it.
- Tree Trimming: We'll assemble a work party to trim back
trees that overhang the road.
