The Winamac Town Council this week heard updates from a number of department heads regarding ongoing projects. Rick Dilts, park superintendent, told the council that the park has been closed and winterized in light of inclement weather, and he pointed out a number of mole holes near the baseball diamonds that need to be filled.
Dilts also told the board that his department has been staying busy with chopping trees, brush, and leaves, and their snowplow is in tip-top shape, ready for winter. The park department also has a new lawn mower, which Dilts said has been working out great.
Electric Superintendent Doug Shorter said his department will start performing inventory within the next few weeks, and has been working on replacing poles and line clearance.
Wastewater Superintendent Brad Zellers told the council that the new blower has arrived and will soon be installed. In the meantime, a new telemetry antenna has been installed on the tower, and work on the catch basins has also been completed. The paving his department had previously been concerned with has been taken care of, and he said they are now working on getting the plant up to ADA codes.
