Winamac Town Board Commends Employees On Swift Storm Cleanup

Winamac Town Hall

The Winamac Town Board commended the town employees on their swift cleanup after the June 29 and July 1 storms that powered through Pulaski County and the 4-H Fair in the Winamac Town Park.

The streets were cleaned up and cleared Sunday, July 1 by 7 p.m. ET, but one board member questioned the street department if the overtime was warranted on Sunday. He felt that the cleanup of fallen trees and brush could have waited until Monday to avoid paying overtime. The standby rate was discussed, but it will addressed further when budget time rolls around.

The board president thanked the employees for a job well done. A resident also helped during the storm who had his own hard hat, gloves and reflective vest, but the town manager was asked to tell that person that while his efforts were commended, he cannot help the town employees due to liability issues.
