DORTCH ENTERPRISES Chief People Person Polly Dortch-Conlan reports that the Taco Bell in Durand should open for business by October. Ground was broken at 8831 E. Lansing Rd. in Durand on Monday, July 15, and as of Thursday, Aug. 8, site work had been completed and the building’s foundation had been constructed.
