The town clerk checked with the mayor and informed Mr. Bolsterle that because our road is private, the town was unable to do anything about a barrier on it. Mr. Bolsterle has since checked with a number of firms looking for an inexpensive way to build it ourselves. So far he has found nothing good, but he is still looking.
