Notes From the Grove: Board Addresses Gravel Pit

• The Town Board met with the owners of the gravel/shooting pit on Mink River Road at our second meeting this month. The Board outlined the list of concerns about what was felt to be excessive shooting creating nuisance and safety concerns. A number of suggestions and possible solutions were discussed. The owners agreed to take action to stop the problem with the understanding that if they do not the board will take the action to stop the problem.
