Wakarusa Council discusses road improvements

May 9, 2014

WAKARUSA -- Discussions at the Wakarusa Town Council were centered around renewing the downtown area.

The construction will allow road crews to add proper base materials to the roads so they don't need to be replaced as often.
There was also discussion of curb and gutter systems to be added, however it was decided that they should be reconsidered in next years budget.
