All staff members are on standby to address issues that may arise due to the pending storm.  Essential personnel will be expected to perform duties as needed and have been so advised, and non-union support staff should make arrangements in the event their services are needed over the course of the storm outside of normal work hours.  Current indications are that the worst of the event may occur on Tuesday but many predict the rain to commence on Sunday.  Therefore, please make necessary personal schedule adjustments and also maintain a copy of the 2012 Emergency Phone Chain to ensure proper communication dissemination.  We must all work together to ensure our community is protected and life is preserved.

Our next Council meeting is Monday, November 26th at 6:00pm.  Jessica and Stuart will be on hand to briefly discuss their progress on the visioning process.


The Morris Lake Reservoir was 28 inches below the top of the spillway on 10.22.12.  The water use restrictions remain in effect.

Thank you to all staff members, professionals, and volunteers who joined business owners and residents at last night’s visioning session.  The next session is tomorrow at Town Hall at 9:00am. 

A reminder that municipal offices will be closed on Tuesday, November 6th, Presidential Election Day and Monday, November 12th in observance of Veterans’ Day.

Congratulations to all of the award winners that were recognized at the annual GNCC Awards Banquet on Wednesday.  We appreciate their commitment to our community.

Sen. Oroho met with us on Wednesday to discuss the rooming house issue that we have been discussing for some time now.  He will advise us about the prospects of the legislative remedy that we are seeking.

Be safe this weekend!  Go Giants!
