*   The Historic Bath Garden Club is trying to repair the bed around the Stone marker on N. Main St.  They are wanting to raise the height of the bed and are in need of ballast stones and would like to appeal to the community for help.  If you have any ballast stones (maybe 2 or 3) that you would be willing to donate, please contact Sallie LaCava @ 252-964-3441.                                                                                                                      

*July 8, 2024 Brightspeed will be having a contractor, Lambert, coming into Bath (city limits) to overlay fiber network cable for internet.  The majority will be laid overhead but there will be a section of S. King Street that will be buried.  This project will take approximately 2 weeks and should be completed by July 18th. 

PSA:  1) Please make sure that you bag your leaves for pickup by town staff.  Leaves that are not bagged will not be picked up.   2) If you have your yard landscaped by a contractor, the contractor is responsible for removal of debris such as limbs/leaves.  3) Please make sure that you do not leave your trash can curbside after scheduled pickup on Thursdays.   Thank you!
