Garner Update

October 2018
We start out this newsletter with a big tip of the cap to staff in Public Works, Police and Garner Fire-Rescue who volunteered to help communities to the east and southeast that were hard hit by Hurricane Florence. Once it was clear Garner had weathered the storm with relatively few impacts, these staff members offered their services where the need was great. Public Works crews also have been working diligently to collect storm debris back home in Garner. They've covered many neighborhoods but still have some more to go.
Weigh In on Greenway Options
The Town has rescheduled the public meeting on the South Garner Greenway extension (canceled due to inclement weather) for Thursday, Oct. 25 from 5:30-8 p.m. It will still be held at White Deer Park Nature Center (2400 Aversboro Road). The hyperlink above takes you to more extensive information and detailed maps about greenway options. There is also an online comment card at https://goo.gl/JPH4Zu.
