Under contruction? Council receives plans for former town hall

HARRISONBURG — More than 17 months after a flooded basement sparked an inspection that led to its use as Elkton’s Town Hall being discontinued, Town Council members soon could act on an effort to get a better grasp on the condition of the historic Jennings House.

Utility-terrain vehicles may be allowed on town streets

GROTTOES – Utility-terrain vehicles could soon be allowed on the streets of Grottoes. On Monday, Feb. 8, the Grottoes Town Council voted to proceed with amending the town’s golf cart ordinance to include UTVs. The action follows a citizen’s request. The town has allowed golf carts on its streets since Dec. 11, 2013. The planning commission recently recommended adding UTVs. A UTV is a 2-6 person vehicle such as a John Deere Gator. One would have to pay a $10 registration fee, pass an inspection, have a valid driver’s license and proof of insurance in order to legally drive a UTV on town streets, Town Manager Jeff Nicely said.
