Rance –
– City Clerk Lynley Sanford presented information on Rance Roberts behalf. Rance was able to meet up with Nolan Packard with Douglas County to review our road conditions and make suggestions for which roads needed chip and sealed. There was interest in having Jone’s street chip and sealed, the process of which would require the road to be closed for approximately 24hrs. The Council requested that letters be sent to residents along that road to receive their input about the process of the road improvements.
