As many of you already know, due to the record-breaking amounts of rainfall and intense flooding Mooseville has suffered these past few weeks, several roads have collapsed. I have issued a state of emergency and have asked City Council to approve measures to help all those who have been affected.
I know the next few weeks will be difficult for our community. We might feel the effects of this tragedy for generations to come but I have faith in Mooseville. I know that we can rise above any challenge if we come together and extend helping hands to our neighbors.
I do not know how long it will take to repair the roads but I will let you know as soon as I have a better understanding of exactly how bad the damage is.
As inconvenient as the next few weeks will be we all know that things could be worse, much worse. Someone could have gotten seriously hurt.
That’s why I’m grateful the only casualties in these unprecedented and unforgiving storms have been the roads. Those we can replace and make stronger than before.
Thank you for your understanding and patience. We will get Mooseville back on track. We will fix our roads.
