GREENWAY ESTATES DETENTION POND UPDATE:
Because of unexpected problems obtaining an expected right of way permit over adjacent agricultural land and because of the severe cold weather strengthening the road surface; Paschel, Bihn & Sons has been granted permission to use Dalling Road to haul dirt from the excavation site to the Woodville Mall property where it will be used as fill when the mall is demolished.
Agreement has been made with Paschel, Bihn & Sons to complete the excavation portion of the project on an expedited basis and to clean the affected roads as soon as possible after the hauling is complete.
I have sent a letter to the residents of Dalling explaining the situation and apologizing for any inconvenience.
