From the Mayor’s Desk
March 3, 2014
In the past two weeks, the Water and Sewer Department has addressed five water main leaks. Thanks to the Momence Fire Department, by providing mobile lighting equipment, the city crew was able to work into the night to repair a water main leak near the south side water tower. The City appreciates the assistance of Chief Buchanon and the Fire Department very much. The most recent leak was on Second Street near the N Franklin Street intersection. Crews determined the location of the leak and allowed the water from the main, with a temperature around 50 degrees, to continue running a few days to breakup the frost. This winter has kept crews working to remove snow and ice and unfortunately, along with the frigid temperatures infrastructure is also negatively affected.
In other news, the City has a job opening for a water meter reader. This position requires an individual to walk the entire town once a month to electronically read water meter usage. On average, it takes approximately 3 days to obtain the readings. The position pays $400.00 per month. Individuals interested in this part-time, but important position, please call City Hall at 1-815-472-2001.
Finally, an informational presentation on the Enterprise Zone will be held on Wednesday, March 12, 2014 at 6:00PM at LN Engineering, 125 South Gladiola. A representative from the Economic Alliance of Kankakee County will present the specifics on how building owners/business owners can take advantage of the incentives offered in the local Enterprise Zone. This presentation is free and seating is limited, so please call City Hall at 815-472-2001 for additional information and to reserve a seat.
Mayor, City of Momence
