Terry Tilley reported that the plans for the Fire Department building renovation is still with USDA and once approved by them we will be able to move to the bidding process.
No word yet on the Sewer plant upgrade plans.
Chris Corbett reported that the Hospital is still looking for a potential buyer. They have looked at a couple of possibilities but none have proven to be viable. If a buyer is not found soon the hospital will go into foreclosure and what happens to the building next is anyone’s guess. The Town will continue to do what it can to help the hospital and keep the Town utilities functioning until the end of the year at which time we will reevaluate the situation and make a decision on what to do from there.
