Last weekend’s rain caused numerous problems for the street department and city hall. A detour was placed on Wesley Street in front of First Baptist Church Wednesday. Traffic was diverted to St. John Street.
The street department decided that the usual patch would not work due to traffic. They stepped up the procedure by digging to the sub base of the street, placing and tamping white rock, installing rebar material, and concrete. The department has a lot to do before the next onslaught of rain starts in a few days.
