Liberty Grove News and Notes

Welcome to the Notes from the Grove, providing Liberty Grove residents and visitors tid bits of information about goings on in town government.

• The Town Board has approved a recommendation from the Economic Sustainability Committee to fund a postcard mailing to reach non-542 zip code Liberty Grove property owners asking for their consideration of locating or relocating a business to Liberty Grove. This effort is being done in co-operative effort with the Top of the Thumb organization. The Economic Sustainability Committee is continuing their effort to retain businesses and attract new economic opportunities to the area.

The board further designated it a silent sports area. The ramp will be reserved for non-motorized watercraft launching. Signage for the area was also approved.
