City Council wants more info on Family Dollar Store

After hearing another request from Dale LaCompte regarding a proposed Family Dollar Store to be built on his property, the Timber Lake City Council responded Monday night with a request of their own. They told LaCompte they would like to hear from a representative of the company that wants to build the building.

“It shouldn’t be your burden,” council member Lilian Turcotte said.

LaCompte had asked at the February meeting and again Monday that the alley in Block 5 be vacated and that the council pass a motion stating that the builders would not be required to pave the outer boundary of the lots. They would like to pave only half of the streets so their trucks can get into the parking lot easily, he said.
