Matters not on the Agenda
Mr. Hines asked if all the streets are being grind down, do they have to be done all the same time. Mr. Terry Lively said this is an ODOT project, they are in charge. A Milling crew would come in first; they take longer to work on the project. With the weather, that is why there is a delay. The City project is going to start grinding the City streets on the 3rd, if the weather comes in we will not leave them like that, we will get them paved before the winter.
