Town Mayor Mike Allen gave neighbors an update debris clean up as well as the status of the beloved park.

“Next couple of weeks we will be getting back to normal,” said the Mayor. “Most of the debris will be getting picked up. Half of our park will open back up. And I think people are starting to take a sigh of relief and are kind of getting back to normal and relaxed a little bit.”
