Reminder of Ordinance Change
Spring is in the air and it won’t be long before the familiar noise of the lawn mowers and the smell of fresh cut grass will be with us.  Last fall in West Nile discussions, it was noted that allowing vegetation to remain tall creates breeding habitat for mosquitoes, thus the attempt to keep the citizens of Letcher safe by eliminating tall vegetation.  Everyone is reminded that the ordinance has been changed in regards to the length of vegetation on your property.  If vegetation gets above a 7” level, you will receive a letter from the Letcher Town Board telling you that you have one week to cut it, or they will do it for you. If you need assistance in finding someone to mow for you, please contact the Board.

We've put together a list of useful information to new residents. You'll find it here: Guide for New Residents

Rebel Wall of Pride
Rebel Wall of Pride In support of our service men and women, the Sanborn Central School decided that a "Rebel Wall of Pride" should be established. A display in the commons area of the school building in Forestburg has been created that lists the addresses of service men and women with Rebel connections. Everyone is invited to bring the mailing address and/or e-mail address of any soldier to include on the walls. The public is invited to come in and get addresses to send letters of encouragement to our forces. A virtual version of the Rebel Wall of Pride can be found at www.sanborncentral.com/rebelwallofpride.html.
