Our Second Safe Room is now under underway. We are awaiting the delivery of the reinforcing for the footings and construction will commence at that point.

The Downtown Enhancement Grant appears to be running ahead of schedule and completion should be done prior to Depot Days.

School has started. Please be aware of the children and additional school traffic.

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

A Reminder, Depot Days is the month of September. Many activities are planned including the annual Parks Street and City Wide Yard Sale on September 3rd , Ms Depot Days Pageant on September 10th, Depot Days Festival on September 17th , the Jack Overby Golf Tournament on September 24th and the Carson & Barnes Circus on September 29th. We encourage everyone to be involved.

Also, help is needed in preparation of these events and if you would like to volunteer a few hours of you time for any event, contact City Hall and they will direct you to the appropriate person.
