The Council made a quick decision on approving a quote for barricades for the Apple and Pork Festival. Steve Lobb explains the company the Street Department has chosen needed a firm commitment for those barricades and so the Council made the approval at cost of almost $700.

The Street Department will be completely closing off Center Street for the festival this year. Lobb notes the tram will be the only motor vehicle allowed on that road between 6 am and 6 pm the Saturday and Sunday of Apple and Pork.
