Review of October 12th Public Meeting

Staff would like to thank everyone for attending the meeting last night and providing your comments and input. We relies on the participation demonstrated last night when moving forward with a project of this size and scope. The FAQ will be an evolving document as we focus on some of the questions you had for us yesterday. We will be updating it over the next few weeks and we will send it out in another update upon its completion.  

Below is an outline of what staff will be working on for the next month. If you have additional questions, you can always contact Matt, Jeff, Mike, or I. Additionally, please contact us if you have issues or questions pertaining to private contractor quotes. We look forward to meeting with all of you again at the November 9th meeting at 7:00PM at Village Hall.
