    Glad they found it early or that someone reported it right away. Thanks for the notification. If they notified DEP district office then all is well. It happens! As dry as it is, that will probably help the grass green up and grow. We pointed out a few things that we noticed as citizens to the street department and want to say a heartfelt
    Thank you for their attention and for getting it done. I feel blessed for living in the town of Century.
    We have to work together for the good of all.
