Board of Supervisors

The Supervisors are going to prepare a bid for fencing. We need to remove 2080 feet of wooden fencing, and install 610 feet of chain link. Most of the work is in Farmingdale; but there is some wooden fencing in Hallowell, south of Greenville Street.

The capstones on the retaining wall in Farmingdale are deteriorating. The length of the wall which needs capstones is 1340 feet.

Race

45 runners have already signed up. Participants will receive water bottles.

Chris has been promoting the idea of business teams competing in the race. The Quarry Room and the Liberal Cup have expressed interest.
