Mayor Minerva McCourt said the issues getting traction aren’t new, but with fast growth in the town those issues are perhaps drawing more attention.
“Safety in our town has been and continues to be an issue, you know, with our town developing, with the traffic and so forth,” said McCourt.
She has additionally heard people talking about the availability of playgrounds.
McCourt said she is eager to work with the new councilor and it is always a great opportunity to get a new perspective on council.
The polls close at 7 p.m. Unless a recount is required, the new councilor would be sworn in Wednesday.
