Starting this week’s report, I want to thank everyone that came out to our Highway Garage Open House last Saturday. Many of the residents that stopped by during the 2 hour event had never been to our facility. Although the reason for the open house was to show the repairs and improvements to our building, many younger visitors were all about the plow trucks and other equipment. I can see this event being held again down the road
