Proposed 2013 Road work included: continue work on Joos Valley reconstruction, some roads need crack fill and seal but it will be looked at budget–permitting. Winter road maintenance costs have made our budget tight due to the large amount of winter weather that we had.

Right now the project is in its initial stages with soil-borings taking place, next step in the project is poll installation. The projected date for the line to be energized is in the year 2015.
