It is time to finally paint our parking stripes in the downtown area.

Please be aware of the following general schedule for the paint crews.

Starting Friday morning (April 8th) crews will begin the process to paint all traffic markings. It is anticipated that they will start on Main Street but this may be dependent on the number of vehicles in the area.

Once the process begins crews have been instructed to close no more than two parking sections (city blocks) at a time. Parking area being defined as a city block parking section – one entire side of the street. Once that area is complete and dry another area will be closed and so on.

Painting should take about 3 days to complete. The process will include grinding a portion of the concrete away and filling the ground section with durable epoxy paint.

After the painting is complete we will then move to permanent signage installation – perhaps by the end of next week (April 15th).

On another note, clean up of the Courthouse lawn will be complete by Monday, April 11th. Sod work will begin after the recommended planting date of April 15th.

As always, thank you for your patience.
