After this project is complete we will reconstruct the Oak/Jefferson intersection and the segment of Jefferson from Oak to Church. Then we will reconstruct the Church/Jefferson intersection.
EAST SHANNON WATERLINE PROJECT – This project is progressing slowly. The contractor had difficulties, but it should be completed soon.
SUMMER PAVING PROGRAM – The summer paving program is progressing well. So far the following streets have been finished: Thomas, Majors, Vicki, Betty, Buford, Connally, Georgia, Lakeview, Holiday, Bell, Hines, Century Lake, and Irwin. This leaves Highland, S. Davis, Lee and League.
NEW CITY HALL – The newly erected scaffolding is a sign that the lead-based paint abatement contractor is preparing to begin his work. The project is beginning in earnest.
CLAIMS - We had one minor workers’ compensation claim in August for a laceration.
