Citizen’s Comments / Visitors

Craig Proper was present to see when the repair of his mother’s yard at the corner of South Railroad and Purdy Streets was going to happen. Tractor trailers cut the corner which means they are cutting in her yard. In the past it was discussed to place the bells on that corner but Street Commissioner Brian Rippeth said he wanted to cement it and make a high curb there. That is on the list to do.
