Remember:

  1. Ask your neighbors to watch your home when you are on vacation.
  2. If you are not home make sure it looks like you are.
  3. If you see or hear something suspicious call 911.
  4. Don’t leave first floor windows open if you are not home.

 

 

Old Business:

    • The board has decided to have tract N zoned for open space. Dale is following up on this.
