News About Town: Last night the Board of Commissioners had two Public Hearings for rezonings. With Zoning Application 2019-697/Harkey the Board unanimously voted to continue the public hearing at the June 10 meeting.

Lawyers representing two of the parcels spoke and requested the town cease the motion and work with the owners for a solution.
