City’s Street Department: “A Job Well Done”

August 21, 2014
Emmetsburg News

Dear Editor,

I would like to complement our city's Street Department for a 'job well done'.

Last winter, we experienced a break in the street's water main. Later that same day, the leak was temporarily repaired and would return to do the permanent fix this summer.

The leak was repaired, poured the concrete at the end of our drive, and only item left was filling in the one foot gap at the end of our driveway with asphalt to complete the mission.

There was a delay in finishing the project with all the rain we received in June. I called the street department asking if they could bring up some gravel to fill in the gap so we could use our driveway. Within 20 minutes, they arrived with a front end loader, filled the gap, smoothed it over and all was good. The permanent asphalt is now in place and looks great.

Gennifer and I personally thank our Street Department for their prompt, professional response to help us out.
