A FREE CHLORINE BURNOUT IS BENEFICIAL IN CLEANING THE WATER SYSTEM TO GIVE US BETTER WATER. WE SHOULD BE SMELLING AND TASTING EVIDENCE OF FREE CHLORINE FOR THE NEXT TWO TO THREE WEEKS.

We have received complaints of coyotes running in town. We have contacted Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks to find out how to get rid of them. They suggested that they are probably young coyotes and are looking for food. Please do not feed you pets outside and put your garbage in a covered container. If they can’t find food they will go elsewhere.
There has been some inquiry about "pit bull" dogs in town. The City still has an ordinance banning "pit bull" breeds and mixes. We would also like to remind citizens that each household is only allowed three dogs and three cats six months of age or older. See the ordinances on the Features page.
The CDBG Gas Improvement Project has bored the new gas line at Seventh and Madison, the alley between Sherman & Wall and Sixth & Seventh, and in front of the high school to 75th Street. The contractor's crew usually works Monday through Friday. They will be moving the First and Clay to begin boring the line from Clay to 75th Street the week of July 16.
