Johnson Services will be in town from July 16th through July 23rd cleaning the sewers in the west part of town. Work may begin as early as 7 a.m.. Residents in the areas to be cleaned will find notifications on their doors with instructions to cover floor drains and toilets with plastic in case water should splash out of them during the cleaning process. The cleaning process could also draw water out of the fixture traps causing an upleasant odor. In that case one should pour water in the drain or flush the toilet to refill the trap. The cleaning is part of regular maintenance to prevent stoppages and keep the sewers working properly.
Habitat for Humanity
Larry Liotta from Manhattan Area habitat for Humanity came to the recent City Council meeting and gave a great presentation on what Habitat for Humanity is doing in the area. Not only are they involved in complete builds, but they also have the Habitat Repair Team for repairing, preserving and improving homes in Riley & Pottawatomie counties. Their new Aging in Place program serves older adults (65+) to help them with modifications or repairs that help them live in their own home safely and independently. If you know anyone that could use some help check out their webpage for more information.
