Orchard City trustees considered, at their Oct. 8  work session, calling a meeting of neighbors sometime in November to discuss the county’s North Road/Highway 65 intersection haul route for the North Road gravel pit.
According to discussion at the work session,  the county believes that improvements required for use of the Myers Road alternate route proposal might not be worth the cost for the small number of trucks using it intermittently.

Orchard City trustees are talking with their engineers about what might be done to prevent further failures on the new West Side main water transmission line.
An independent laboratory report released this past summer concluded there were no defects in manufacturing of the HDPE resin pipe and fittings that failed and led to big water spills and repair headaches last winter.

“We plan to bring these very involved criminal cases to prosecution and/or grand jury in upcoming months,” Sanders’ report noted.
