All the recent rain has made it difficult for local construction crews working on various projects in and around the McPherson community.

At the city commissioners’ weekly meeting this morning, Director of Public Works Jeff Woodward offered an update on the lack of recent progress on the McPherson’s Maple Street construction along with a hopeful prognosis.

“We virtually have not progressed any in the last week due to rain,” said Woodward. “But we have high hopes for this week.”

Based on the good-natured chuckling heard throughout the room, city commissioners weren’t quite sure the weather would cooperate with the deadpan optimism expressed by Director Woodward.
