Martin Luther King Jr. Day (officially Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. and sometimes referred to as MLK Day) is an American federal holiday marking the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. It is observed on the third Monday of January each year, which is around King’s birthday, January 15. The holiday is similar to holidays set under the Uniform Monday Holiday Act. The earliest Monday for this holiday is January 15 and the latest is January 21.

King was the chief spokesperson for nonviolent activism in the Civil Rights Movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law. The campaign for a federal holiday in King’s honor began soon after his assassination in 1968. President Ronald Reagan signed the holiday into law in 1983, and it was first observed three years later. At first, some states resisted observing the holiday as such, giving it alternative names or combining it with other holidays. It was officially observed in all 50 states for the first time in 2000.     –   Wikipedia

FYI: Monday Trash Service will run on Tuesday, January 22nd.

CODE RED
OH JOY! - Be Advised - The boil order has been lifted! What this means: the Town has repeatedly passed ALL test samples for the duration of the boil order and following the disinfection of the system. You do not have to boil your water, it is safe for all uses.
 
Be advised: There will be an elevated level of chlorine in the system for an extended period of time. You may notice air and/or cloudy water. This will dissipate as people use the water and flush the lines.
 
We want to thank everyone for their understanding and patience during this event, as well as a HUGE thank you to all who volunteered and shared kind words for us here at Town Hall and out working in the field.
