Ponderosa Estates Manhole Project Runs July 1-31

first_imgWhy are manhole covers round? A manhole cover is round because it won’t fall through the opening on which it sits, it can simply be rolled to reach a destination much faster, while applying relatively little effort. Courtesywww.scienceabc.com Traffic control will be set up daily in several locations along the project route and residents are urged to use caution when driving through and walking near these work zones. The work is scheduled to begin at 8 am and end by 5 p.m. each day. The concrete being used is a high strength mix and will require a cure time, residents are urged to avoid driving over these manholes for the first few days after they are poured. This work will begin on Aspen Drive at Range Road and continue along Aspen Drive, Sumac Lane and Maple Drive before finishing back at Aspen Drive. Beginning Monday, July 1, crews will be adjusting manholes in the Ponderosa Estates area. center_img Since there a dozens of manhole adjustments in this sub-division, construction is scheduled to go through July 31.

D&G Kids Get Christmas Budget Bonanza

first_img“This is a great Christmas bonanza, the school attainment fund is aimed at helping the most needy pupils.  I campaigned for it to be on the basis of free school meals because that really helps rural areas like Dumfries and Galloway where child poverty is more dispersed.  The old system based on “Areas of Multiple Deprivation” favoured concentrated pockets in the cities. The money is part of an attainment fund from the Scottish Government which allocates £1200 for every child eligible for free school meals. It is to go direct to schools and was announced by the new Scottish Finance Secretary Derek Mackay MSP when he unveiled his first budget on Thursday. “The £120million will come directly from the Scottish Government, not councils as was previously proposed. That means councils can use the increased council tax on higher rated homes to spend on local priorities.” Ms McAlpine said: The attainment money allocates £1200 for 2599 pupils entitled to free school meals in Dumfries and Galloway.  It will go to schools where headteachers will determine how it will be spent to close the gap in performance between pupils from different backgrounds.

The £120million for school attainment was part of a budget which included an additional £304million for the NHS and £240million additional spend for councils.Mr Mackay also extended the small business bonus scheme to take more small businesses out of rates altogether. The money was welcomed by Joan McAlpine MSP for South Scotland who campaigned for the attainment fund to be distributed on the basis of school meal entitlement. “Derek Mackay’s budget was set against swinging cuts to Scotland’s budget .  Independent analysis by the Fraser of Allander institute has shown that Westminster has cut Scotland’s budget by almost £3billion between 2010 and 2020.  Despite this the Scottish government has delivered free university tuition, kept free bus passes, abolished prescription charges and given the NHS above inflation rises. “Now on top of these achievements Derek Mackay’s first budget is delivering for schools right across the country.  It is absolutely right that spending in schools is determined by teachers, not local authority education departments.
