Apart from the great work the City work crews are currently doing to keep our residents safe from the high water levels, I would like to give some appreciative words to the City's work crew that upgraded the Willow Street sewer line a couple of weeks ago.
I've lived on this street for the past 12 years, which has been properly maintained without any problems.
In May, we received notice that the City was going to upgrade the sewer line, and that our street would be closed while the work was in progress.
Before the actual work began, I had the chance to talk with the foreman to find out what parts would be affected for entry/exit, where to park, how the work would progress, and when the job was expected to be completed. Excellent information was provided, and once the work began, the work crew progressed up the street in an orderly manner doing one section at a time.
All were good at what they did and were very courteous and friendly to those that passed by. At the end of each day, the work sections were cleaned up so that traffic flow was reinstated.
Once the main job was finished, a grader and roller smoothed out the supplied crushed material on both sides of the street, even though only one side was where the major work was done.
I, for one, really appreciated the end result, and as far as I know the neighbours felt the same way. Now that the job has been completed, our street is better than ever, so kudos to the work crew (and all the others that participated and did the necessary work), as it's folks like you that will continue to make Kamloops such a great place to live and call home.
