Commissioner of Streets and Utilities Larry Wiens had a message for McPherson residents at the city commission meeting this morning.
“With all the rain that we’ve had recently, there’s a lot of storm drains that have leaves and trash and stuff over them,” said Wiens.
“If you happen to have one in your neighborhood, why, do everybody a good deed and move them away from the drain or the grates so that the water can drain and probably end up saving somebody’s basement.”
It’s a service to the community as well as a service to our tax-funded city street crews already working diligently to keep the local area cleaned up from all the storm debris.
And you never know – that somebody’s basement could be your own!
