ASSUMPTION It is that time of the year again!  The sugarcane grinding season will be underway very shortly.

With that, there will be all sorts of equipment, i.e. trucks, tractor trailers, cutters, etc. that will utilize public highways to get their product to the mills.

There will be times that the roadway will accumulate mud, especially during rainy periods.

While the sugarcane season is important to the local economy, safety is critical.  Therefore, we urge the motoring public to exercise caution during the season.

If you have children driving to school, please advise them accordingly.
