TOWN MGR/TAX COLLECTOR/CODE ENF OFFICER/RD COMM. REPORT:

 

            1.   There was discussion about sweeping the roads.  Kevin said he is going to try renting a sweeper from Jordan Equipment and having our public works crew fill a hopper with the sand, dump it into our one-ton to recycle it for the small public sand shed.  If it doesn't work out well, Kevin said he would probably hire Tim Richardson to do the sweeping.

 

            2.   There was discussion about this year's proposed road projects, including work on Fuller and Damascus Roads.
