Good Afternoon Parkview Drive and Edward Avenue Residents

 

    

 

Due to the repair of a water main break in your area, there is a chance water service may be interrupted at approximately 8:00am tomorrow (Wed 11/15).  The crew will not know for certain if water needs to be turned off until they begin the work, but I wanted to let you know there is a possibility.  If so, they will do their absolute best to get water back on as soon as possible.

 

If you can please pass this message onto your neighbors who do not have email access, I would greatly appreciate the help. J

 

Feel free to contact me with ANY questions or concerns.

 

Thank you for your patience,

"Any guy who can do a body slam ... he's my guy," Trump said at a rally in Missoula [[ mih-ZOO-la ]] Montana yesterday. Gianforte pled guilty to assault after he body slammed a reporter for The Guardian before a special election last year.        JPMorgan Chase is warning investors a recession is likely coming, despite what has been a strong economy.
