Hansen and City Works Director Dan Clark were excited by this project, saying a lot of people were involved in it. They both thanked Former City Administrator Randy Balk for getting this project done. Balk attended the open house and was happy to see the project showcased.
“This is a pleasant dream coming true,” Balk said.
Others associated with the project came to the open house, including contractor Bill Brown. Brown’s job foreman, Gary Linton, brought his daughters, Jayden and Brooke, to see what he helped build.
“A lot of work went into it,” Linton said. “I know the city needs something like this and it’s a big improvement for the waterworks department. I know that.”
