As a result of a water main break on Weathervane Ave., Construction work will be starting later this week on installing a replacement main along Weathervane Avenue, between 44th Street and Weathervane Court. Construction activity will take place during normal business hours for the next week. Weathervane Avenue will be down to a single lane during construction. The main line should be completed before Thanksgiving. After Thanksgiving the existing service lines will be connected to the new main and pavement patching and cleanup to follow. Thanks for your patience during this emergency repair and replace work. If you have any question please contact Public Works, 253-564-8900
Fall and winter have arrived and at Public Works that means keeping the roads and storm systems clear and clean. It would be most helpful if the residents assisted us in keeping the leaves off of the storm grates and not blowing or throwing debris into the streets as this tends to be the biggest cause of flooding. Out street sweeper will be out to try to keep up with the fall debris.
As it gets colder, we may get some ice and snow and we will then be deicing the streets and following our snow removal schedule as we have done in the past years.
As always if you have questions or need to report any problem areas, please give us a call at 253-564-8900. If you call after hours this will go to an answering service and it will report the problem.
