The new entranceway signs were placed last week at the three locations coming into town, two on US 40 and one on State Highway 9. The Freeport-McMoRan Foundation has given us $20,000 dollars in a community development grant for this project. The current entranceway sign on Highway 9 shall be re-designated as an events advertising sign.
A big Thank You to all who helped in all the events that were held over the summer. It seemed that all who attended had fun; from kids in the bouncy castles to adults conversing and coming together. Events are good for our economy.
2016 sales tax is still holding up for the first half of the year. It is up 8.4% from last year which was a record year. January, February, April and May have all been record months with March and June being close seconds to the records. A big thank you goes out to all the businesses and to the residents and visitors who shop here.
