Thanks city for leadership during crisis

Published: Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014 1:15 a.m. CDT

We, the people of Rock Falls, owe a big thank you to our mayor, sewer department, and water department for fixing our problem so quickly.

Also, thanks to Culligan and Walmart for the water, and thanks to the people with the portapotties. Thanks to all the volunteers and people behind the scenes. All of this was set up and started in a matter of hours, and the problems were solved.

This shows that leadership is very important, and emergency actions were put into place. We bring people together, and things get done.

We have a few elderly neighbors, and everyone was checked and rechecked, and we got through just fine. Thank you, again.
