Written January 22nd, 2021 by Hasso Hering

Written November 12th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

This is the case of a deadline past and gone. The northern 2,100 feet of Crocker Lane was supposed to be turned into a fully developed city street with a new water line underground by Nov. 3. Looks like finishing the job will take a bit more time.
