Town of North Judson Prepares for the Holidays

Some of the new holiday decorations that were purchased for the Town of North Judson have started going up.

Town Superintendent Joe Leszek informed the Town Council Monday night that Utility crews already installed some along Lane Street and there are plans to put them up on Main Street and State Road 10 later this week. Once they’re all up, he said the plan is to get them timed to light up on Friday, November 29th.

He noted that they’ve been able to use the forklift so far but asked the council for permission to utilize a bucket truck that Utility Department employee Kim Kapp has for some of the areas that can’t be reached currently. He and noted that she has it insured.
