Pulaski Mayor Offers His Appreciation to County Agencies

Mayor Ernest Wheeler expressed his gratitude to the county Highway Department and Emergency Management Office for their help during the recent flooding of the Salmon River. Speaking at the October meeting of the County Legislature, Mayor Wheeler said he wanted to personally thank Highway Superintendent Kurt Ospelt and his department "for doing such a great job" after a retaining wall collapsed into the river. He credited them for saving the village sewer system and a nearby street by securing the river bank with 180 tons of rock. The river was measured at 26,000 cubic feet per second during the flooding on Oct. 1.
