We are very happy to see the rain today – yay! Unfortunately we had to call in an additional truck yesterday to keep water levels sufficient. This truck cost the Town approximately $3000.00 but we are hopeful that we will not have to call it in again. Repairs to the Granville Ferry water tank are expected to be completed by the middle of next week.
