Goldonna News March 9

If you drive the beautiful and winding road to Goldonna you truly feel like you are one with nature. The trees will be debuting their green spring wardrobe soon and it will even be more beautiful!

Also debuting in the coming weeks will be a temporary cell phone tower to make way for a permanent one in a few months. Goldonna has almost been a dead zone since cell phones were in existence, but our kids should be texting in church sometime in the real near future! Village of Goldonna officials have been working on this for a while and the residents are very excited and grateful.

Goldonna Dusty Cut League will have registration on March 12th from 12:00 to 2:00pm. You will need to provide a copy of your child’s birth certificate if they did not play last year. Age groups are 5-7, 8-10, 11-13, and 14-17. The cost is $35 per child and $15 for siblings.

Fiber optic internet should be up and running at Goldonna Elementary Junior High any day now. The students will be enjoying internet at a faster speed.

March water bills included the information for the new water leak protection coverage. Bills were placed inside blue envelopes containing the flyer with more information on this valuable service. The new program goes into effect April 1st. You can opt out of this service by calling 318-527-0400. ServLine Company also offers a sewer option, but it is contracted directly between the customer and the company. The cost is $2.35 per month or $28.20 annually for up to $2500 worth of coverage. This could save households hundreds of dollars in the event of an unforeseen leak.

Sales tax dollars are still coming in and being used to repair roads in Goldonna. Savell Road is now complete. Gates Road should be receiving some much-needed attention soon.

The Spring Fish Fry will have photo ops with none other than the Easter Bunny himself. There will also be a scavenger hunt for the older children. Dinners are $9 each and include fish, fries, coleslaw, hushpuppies, dessert, and a drink. Orders of 8 or more can be delivered. Please contact the Mayor or Alldermen for tickets for this family friendly event.
