There’s a lot to look forward to this spring and summer in the city of Carver, and I want to share a few updates.

April showers bring May flowers, but in Carver rain this time of year has historically brought spring floods. Thankfully that’s not the case this year, but regardless, I’m continuing to make finding funding partners for Carver’s Levee Improvement Project a priority.
