March 13, 2013 - Library parking lot

The Clarkston Independence District Library plans to repair its parking lot and is currently seeking bids for the project, but patrons will have to wait until spring before all the holes are filled. "It's just a situation where there's only so much you can do when the weather's like this," said Library Director Julie Meredith. In the meantime, Meredith said cold patching would be done.
