Thanks to public works department

Recently our yard was flooded with water resulting from a break in the water line servicing our home.

Dear Editor:

Recently our yard was flooded with water resulting from a break in the water line servicing our home.

My husband telephoned the Public Works office first thing in the morning to report the problem.

The receptionist was very professional, pleasant and helpful.

Within one-half hour Public Works personnel were on site at our property to assess the problem and organize the repair of the broken line.

Attending to these repairs were a backhoe operator, a vacuum truck operator, a dump truck operator, waterworks truck operator, and sand truck operator. All of these individuals were extremely courteous to us and each of them quickly and efficiently performed their jobs.

They even saved our lilac bushes and replaced our fence posts. Most importantly, they restored our water services.

Thank you to all of the above individuals who helped us. Hats off to you all.
