Road work around the city of Kampsville is underway as the Mayor of Kampsville, Wade Gibson.
Gibson announced on Wednesday, Sept. 15. County Highway Department crews recently completed road repair and maintenance work in the Village of Hamburg and are now working on repairs and maintenance for the Village of Kampsville.
“It is anticipated that the work in Kampsville will be completed before the end of September,” Kyle Godar P.E.
