Supervisor's Report and Notice of Special Meeting

We had to declare a local state of emergency for Hydor Drive due to the occurrence of a third sinkhole in the last five months.  The bottom of the stormwater pipe is corroded and water is causing erosion of the soil to the point where small sections of the road are collapsing.  We’re using cones to prevent residents from driving on the affected side of the road and are negotiating with firms that can repair the stormwater pipe as soon as possible.  We thank the people on Hydor Drive for their patience.  We will solve this problem.

Road paving has been postponed due to scheduling issues with the company that will be paving our roads.  Paving is now tentatively scheduled to begin on August 22nd.

Our Music in the Park concert series starts tomorrow night (August 2nd) at 6:00 p.m. in Onderdonk Park.  Music will be provided by Band of Gold.

On August 6th, there will be a volunteer community weed pull and clean-up at Hanpton Manor Lake from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.  This event is sponsored by the newly-formed Hampton Manor Action Group.  See their Facebook page for more information on the group and this event.

The Town Festival will be held on Saturday, August 20th starting at noon and ending with fireworks over the lake at 8:00 p.m.  This is a great event put together by our Town Services Coordinator Jessica Lansing.
