City Administrator Stephanie LaBrune reported that she had received a request from Tom Gladis of Gladis Trucking for the city to help pay to clean out a ditch behind his business property. An estimate of $4,000 had been obtained from T.E. Underground of Tyler to do the work. Gladis was requesting $1,000 from the City of Tyler.
“He’s having issues with water backup onto his property and wants to get [the ditch] cleaned out,” LaBrune told the council. “He would like to get it done this winter. He has been working with [Buffalo Ridge Concrete], DeZeeuws and will be talking to the school also.”
