Carbon Notices - May 2, 2018

NEXT COUNCIL MEETING – Monday, May 14, 2018 @ 7 PM @ Community Hall.

THANK YOU – The Village wishes to thank all those persons who helped out during the flood in Carbon. A special shout out to our Public Works foreman Jim Pears and Public Works assistant Doug Stevenson. They have done a fabulous job in keeping the Village of Carbon safe.

Also thank you to:

Deb Grosfield and Mathew Curwin, our Disaster Emergency Managers, for providing sandbags and monitoring the flood on a daily basis. There are so many more persons to thank and we appreciate all the hours and work you have provided. As we move forward there is a lot of work that needs to be done. Once the flooded areas have drained and dried up the work will begin. The Lions Club have graciously committed to restore the ball diamond in the east campground. The Village will be asking for volunteers once we are able to assess the damage. We will be starting a volunteer list at the Village office and if you wish to volunteer some time, please give us a call and we will put you on our list and will be contacting you once we have a plan in place. THANK YOU!!!
