#1 - Since taking office in 2017, I have been focused on improving cell service in town. We have two new macro cell towers in development in the North of town, and my goal is to initiate two additional towers in the the West and Center of town in the next two years.

#2 - We have started to process to modernize our Police Department facilities by either renovating the current building or building new somewhere on town-owned property. My goal is to start construction in mid-2022 on the new facility.

#3 - The installation of natural gas mains since 2018 (a project which I inspired) has resulted in many roads downtown that need to be restored. My goal is to have most roads restored by 2013.
