West Boundary Ext. not open for traffic
The new West Boundary Extension is still closed to traffic, according to Robert Pearson, chief of police in Holly Springs. It is the new section of West Boundary that begins at Chulahoma Avenue, passes in front of Marshall Academy and ties into Crescent Meadow Drive west of the Holly Springs Commons.
He said officers are monitoring the new road, still under construction, and issuing tickets in an effort to keep people off the road until it is opened. The street should be opening soon, perhaps before the end of the year, he said.
‘Ratepayers’ Forum’ Dec. 10 at courthouse
Brandon Presley, Northern District public service commissioner, has scheduled a “Ratepayers’ Forum” Thursday, Dec. 10, at the Marshall County Courthouse in Holly Springs from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The event is free, and the public is invited to attend.
This town-hall type meeting in Holly Springs is one in a series of events Presley has scheduled across the district in the coming months to hear directly from ratepayers and the general public.
“I wanted to give people a chance to come and talk to me, one on one, about their concerns regarding high utility rates and service, and how that affects their lives and businesses,” Presley said. “I also wanted to provide a forum where I can speak directly to the public about utility issues facing the PSC today and the major reforms I believe are necessary, and I want to give them the chance to ask their questions.”
In addition to updating the public on current issues, Presley plans to discuss his recently proposed “Ratepayers’ Bill of Rights,” financial assistance programs available to low-income ratepayers, as well as updates on the No Call Law and many other consumer related topics.
