Update on Buckeye Pipeline work in area off of Stoney Mountain road. From Buckeye Pipeline :

"I wanted to provide a brief update as to our pipeline maintenance plans.  Tentatively between now and mid-October, weather and conditions permitting, we expect to perform our maintenance, as our original schedule was delayed.  


Work could extend into November/December, if we are delayed for any reason, as we are performing maintenance on multiple sites along our 701 pipeline; however, we are doing our best to have the work completed in October if we can."


*We are having issues with bears in the community.

Some tips on how to keep the bears away.

· Don’t place your garbage outside unsecured

· Do not leave pet food, bird seed, and/or garbage outside.

· Do not leave food outside for any wildlife.

· Clean your barbeque grill after use and never dump the grease outside.

Eliminating the feeding source will help detract bears! Black bears will consume almost anything.
