Please be cautious on Water Street between Elm and Center. Water is ponding on the road and turning into ice. My guess is that a pipe burst. I called it in to Public Works, but until it is fixed please watch out.

A public hearing is scheduled for January 9, 2018 at 7pm before the Planning and Zoning Commission in the Harriet North Room to discuss two applications filed by The Haven Group, LLC. These applications request changes to the Zoning Regulations and the Zoning Map relative to the Waterfront District. Complete files are available for public inspection in the Office of Planning and Development.

The City Council meeting on Tuesday Dec. 26th is cancelled. I will still be around next Tuesday if anyone would like to meet and chat. The next scheduled meeting is Jan 8th.

Remember this coming up week, if your trash pickup is normally on a Monday then your pickup will be delayed one day due to Christmas.

Five 2015 holidays delay curbside pick up by 1 day.

This will impact many 3rd District residents. Road closures around "The Haven." I will update with a date when I find out definitely when this will happen.
