Watering 12th Street
The city is underway with its reconstruction of 12th Street from the Methodist Church to 89a, closing the street to vehicles until construction is complete. The city completed the long-time construction from Fir Street to the Methodist Church, opening the road to the public around Thanksgiving. The northernmost portion of the road improvement was delayed to provide time for the city to successfully negotiate agreements with a couple of residents. VVN/Vyto Starinskas
