Alderman Pritchett wanted to acknowledge and thank teachers John Davin and Larry
Caldieraro, as well as their classes from Staunton High School, who recently made
eleven picnic tables for the Fireman’s Park. The City purchased the lumber to build
the tables and these two classes at the high school put them together in a very short
period of time. A special thanks to both teachers and their two classes for doing this
project for the City.
Alderman Pritchett also made mention that an email was sent to Madison
Communications requesting the most recent quarterly data from Madison customer
service requirements. Madison had sent a report to the City stating that they had
met the standards, but Pritchett has asked for documentation. The original email was
sent on April 4, 2019 and as of this time, there has been no response from Madison.
