“We hope the project may be completed by end of this month but definitely by November,” he said. “It will be a wonderful addition. I am super excited about it. It will be a plus and really help the front door of our community, especially coming off the bridge with the food truck park, how it is built, and also the landscaping around it.”

Goins again said he was uncertain of a date for project completion, but emphasized it should be in the near future.
