President's Notes

Seymour By-Pass

I have been requested by state DEEP to make sure none of our people are going into the construction area. If they wish to view it they can from across the river on the other side of the road, not in the construction area. If anyone enters the area the job project risks being shut down and the person is subject to arrest and all the fines and penalties of the law. I remind everyone this is a Federally funded project run by the State please stay out.

Thank you,
