Update - August 10th 3:00 PM

Here at the end of day three, there has been incredible success. The streets have been covered and are in the process of drying. By tomorrow, all parking should be completely back to normal. 

Thank you to everyone for your patience through the process. The Board of Alderman would like to apologize for any inconvenience and are grateful that we have five more years before we have to do this again!


Update - August 9th 6:00 PM

Here at the end of day two the contractors have had success with paving the streets. However, due to the prospect of rain on Thursday, a co-decision was made between the City and the contractor to push ahead with the pavement and try and be done by end of business day.


Tonight - - Please Park on any completed street if the area in front of your house has not been completed yet. 


--City Alderman - Bill McCrary will be stopping by door to door today, and they will be trying to inform people as they come into the Acres about the change.

August 8 through August 19th

Residents will lose access to their driveway for approximately 24 hours during street sealing

Please watch for updates during the work.

- Each area to be sealed will be blocked off at approximately 6AM on the day of resurfacing and will be reopened at approximately 6 AM the next day

- Cars can be parked on the street outside of the sealing area on the day of sealing

- Emergency vehicles will have access to streets for emergencies

- Police patrols will be increased during the resurfacing days

- Tuesday trash service will be suspended during the resurfacing

- Any weather delays will push the schedule day to day

- Information during the resurfacing will be posted at the Flag Island and on including any information about weather delays
