Rance –
– Street updates: chip n’ seal done/ patch work still needs done throughout.
– Water plant update: battery back-up went bad, purchased a new one, working on making it all work again; guttering on water-plant building needs work, it holds water and is rusting the current guttering. Suggest putting one front and one rear gutter in center of guttering.
