Letter to the Editor: Waukon street repairs and improvements

To the Editor:

The Waukon Mayor and present City Council should be commended for a great job this past year of planning and scheduling street repair and improvement plans. The City Engineer, Street Superintendent and contractors, local and from a distance, down to the hand shovel operators, all seemed to do a very professional job in all areas. They did this all the while trying to accommodate local traffic and provide the least inconvenience.

It is great to see tax dollars being used in such a visible and positive manner. It’s been a long summer and the timing could not have been better. The new streets ride like glass and our automobiles thank you all.

I’ve heard this from numerous individuals and the retiring City Council members should take pride in your judgment and accomplishments during your tenure in office. This also goes for the State highways that traverse our fair city. Thank you from our community.
