Residents of Hilltop addition:

Construction of the water lines and road will begin October 21st. We will begin by obtaining water samples which may take up to five days to get back before we can begin moving the water lines. There will most likely be unavoidable delays and lots of heavy equipment to maneuver around. We appreciate your patience as we complete this project and apologize for any inconvenience.
