The Town Board will not be scheduling a work session this week.
SATURDAY, farmer's market and outdoor concert.
Thursday evening, outdoor concert, Yosemite Park--Theodore Young Community Center

PLAYGROUND BEING REPLACED AT RICHARD PRESSER PARK/WEBB FIELD. We decided to replace the old playground during the end of July/early September so that children will enjoy the new equipment in September when school opens. This is the slowest time of the year and the best time to replace the playground equipment.
