NOTE FROM MR. LIBBY
As you may or may not know the Bath Water District is beginning a construction project to upgrade and add onto the treatment plant behind the Woolwich School. T-Buck construction was awarded the contract and will be mobilizing to the site in the coming weeks. The first phase of construction will be earth work for the new building addition and that means dump truck traffic in and out of the plant. No parking signs will be installed along the travel corridor to keep the lane clear. Parking spots will not be removed but the goal is to stop people who are parking in the travel lane along the playground, rather than in designated areas. Please help us keep this roadway clear of all traffic during drop off and pick up times. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. ~Mr. Libby
