Roads & Bridges

Grading Crew placed hold on Harborough Lane pipe replacement project through Thanksgiving holidays until utilities could be relocated. Reshaped and added gravel to Hill Top Circle and Poore Road (gravel roads). Loaded and transported concrete barricades off Guyton Road and delivered them to our yard.

Asphalt crew installed new aprons, patched potholes, and made asphalt repairs around the Civic Center at the site of Lights of Hope.

Sign crews removed the road closure signs on both Guyton Road and Sullivan Road.  Both projects are now under contract to be repaired

Bridge crew built rebar cages for solar light bases to be poured on East West Parkway.

Contractor started work at Guyton Road Culvert and Sullivan Road Culvert Projects on November 28, 2016 and are expected to be completed by mid-April, 2017.


Met with the Home Owners Association for Leeward Landing Condominiums to discuss our pump station upgrade.

Pennington Farms sewer installation will start next week. This subdivision will consist of 32 lots and is going in off McGee road and Linda Lane near Highway 81 North.

Observed air test and deflection test on the 8 inch sewer extension for phase 2 of Three Bridges subdivision. All testing passed.

ROW crew continued cutting the Beaver Dam line this week. We started at Alliance Park late last week, and made our way to Cobbs Glen. Since the dry weather we have been able to pass through many wet areas that have caused problems in the past.

We had a contractor come out and replace a section of pipe in the Stonehaven Subdivision this week due to the failure of an old metal storm drain under the road. We also removed our bypass pump from the job site after the repair was completed, and sewer service was restored.

Animal Shelter

PAWS hired a new Administrative Assistant who began work on 11/28.

The clinic did 49 surgeries in two days.

Cross trained staff on our software so they can better serve the public.
