Many thanks


Many thanks for sewer cleanup

On Sunday, March 9, at about 2 p.m., the sewer began to back up into my basement. Not a very pleasant occurrence. What to do? Who to call?

After a couple of unanswered calls I finally found help. Leroy Hulke of the Pine River Public Works Department said he’d be right over to check out the manholes in my neighborhood. Good to his word, he was on the block in less than 10 minutes and had discovered what was creating my issue.
