We were over budget on the bidding of the second safe room for Newbern. We will be reevaluating the project and determine methods of reducing the cost.

The Downtown Enhancement Grant is underway. Ford Construction has been working on the project for over three weeks and appears to be running ahead of schedule. The will be moving to the library area next to adjust the curbing to meet ADA Standards then to the City Hall Area.

We are making progress on the Automated Meter Reading System. We will be meeting with the consultant in two weeks and should have bids available by the June board meeting.

Just a reminder, for our customers to take advantage of the online bill payment system and the levelized billing program. You can get information on both at city hall.

As most of you know we have obtained a new facility for the library. The Library Board will be completing the Grant Applications and fund raising will begin immediately.

Would like to congratulate all the 2016 Graduates from DCHS, DHS, TCAT and Dyersburg State who have accomplished great goals in their lives.

Remind everyone the Oakview Pool will be opening next week and family and individual passes are available.
