Mayor comments:  This weekend there is a lot going on; second Saturday, and the Parade.  Santa will be at the Fire Department.  The Community Hall will be having Ornament’s for a donation of a canned good for the food pantry.  The Bank building is coming along, will be putting carpet in by Monday the 15th.  They have been doing a lot of flushing on the sewer lines, behind the vet clinic there was a lot of needles and debris, plus three buckets of rock and gravel further down on that sewer line.  Will probably have to come back to the Board for more money. That is all the Mayor has at this time.
