Elk River has really been busy this year and the campgrounds are running strong. The campgrounds and tourism is a large part of the economy for Pineville. It is great to have the streams running thru here and giving folks from all over the 4 states a place to come spend time with us.
Disaster projects are getting closer to being completed. The drainage ditch coming down Jesse James Road is the largest project we have to complete. We have went out to bid once for it and we found some more work that needed to be added to it. That ditch is a piece of history and we want to preserve it for future generations. The ballfield is almost complete with a new walking trail coming later this year.
Our new water tower up by the Pineville Pre-K off business 71 is completed and going in service around June 7th . This project will greatly improve water pressure for the school and the new homes being built in the area and allow for future expansion of our city. This additional water storage and pressure will also help on fire protection for the city.
I need to add one change to our council meetings, we have went down to one meeting during the summer months to see if it works. So we are meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6 pm at city hall.
