The sales tax revenue appears
to be only down a few percentage points. July and
August were good months. Thanks to all who visited
Indian Point this summer and the efforts of the
businesses in getting visitors to the point.
The new storm siren is
operational. We will start testing it on Wednesdays
once a month weather permitting. You will not
actually hear the siren sound but will hear chimes.
There should be a voice message which tells if it is
a test or an actual storm warning. We are very
fortunate to have our own siren; parts of the county
no longer have sirens due to the commissioners
cutting costs. Thanks go out to White River Electric
for donating a pole and manpower.
