Mayor urges residents to spruce up lawns
Mayor Dennis Fitzpatrick is trying his best to make Glenville a model city for beauty and cleanliness. Hence, he has kindly requested that the Glenville city residents make sure that their yards are properly maintained and the grass cut. He makes this announcement in order to create a more beautiful city for all of the out-of-county, out-of-state, and reunion visitors who will be coming here in mid-June. Your compliance will be greatly appreciated.
Also, drivers should be cautious at the curve on College Street going passed the college’s South Entrance toward the North Entrance. In this case, a large slippage has made one-lane of traffic mandatory for safety!
