Telephone report from Vickie Stafford, Mayor, tells of significant
progress having been made over the past two weeks. Almost all of
the eastern half of Formoso is now being served by the new water
system. As one can see from the map, water
is now in the lines following Howe, Spenser, Patterson and Quy
streets, as well as all along Omio Road.
The volunteers are now focused
on Main Street. The team rented a boring machine and tunneled
under the sidewalk in the downtown area, providing service to the Post
Office, the Senior Citizens Center and the bank without tearing up the
curb & gutter and sidewalk in front of those
establishments. The report is the approach was
"slick" and easier then anticipated.
Work will continue next week to
the south end of Main Street. From there work will probably go
back up on Patterson and to the west of Main.
