The goal is to begin work in the fall of 2014.

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.

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.
Now you can be informed of what's going on at Sanborn Central School
by signing up for the Rebel e-News. It is a short,
informative e-mail sent out Monday through Friday letting you know
what events are taking place in the school and around the community.
It's easy to sign up for -- just visit
this link and follow the instructions: Rebel e-News
This is a community website. Your ideas for new pages and features
are invited. If you have information, notices or Letcher-related pictures
that you would like to see published here, please email your information to
for consideration. Thanks!
