DPS Appreciation Good Afternoon, I want to tell you how much I appreciate the construction crew that is working on our street. The construction team leaders held a Zoom meeting prior to starting the work, told us what to expect and answered any questions we had. They have even sent us weekly email updates to keep us informed of how the work is progressing. The construction crew works extremely hard while they are here and have been very accommodating. This crew has gone out of its way to accommodate my family. On July 22nd my husband had total knee replacement surgery and as luck would have it - the work on our side of the street started July 21st. I called Ted Meadows on the 21st and explained our situation. He was extremely helpful. After tearing out the cement, he had his crew put in a gravel ramp that connected our driveway to the newly paved portion of the street. This allowed me to pull up to the driveway so my husband could get to the car for his PT appointments. This week, they came to the door to tell us that they would work around us, if we still needed the ramp. Fortunately, things are going so well that my husband could walk across the neighbor’s lawn to the end of the street where it is paved to get into the car. I know that there has been a lot of rain and that the construction is behind schedule, but every day that they were able to work - they were here. I’m sure that you get complaints when people aren’t happy - I want to be sure that you hear the compliments when they are warranted. Warm regards, Cindy Shankin Lead and Copper Rule Thank you to all City employees The purpose of the Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) that participated in our 2021 Lead is to protect public health by minimizing lead and and Copper water testing, either copper levels in drinking water.
