The city has arranged for a dumpster at the public works facility (located at the west end of 5th Street in the business park) for Sully residents to dispose of leaves/yard waste as an alternative to burning.  Acceptable items are leaves and twigs less than one-quarter inch in diameter which must placed in a biodegradable bag.  DO NOT bring these items to the dumpster in a plastic trash bag.  Use biodegradable bags only.  DO NOT bring normal garbage to this dumpster.  There is a $250 fine for dumping items other than leaves/yard waste.  IF THE RULES FOR USE OF THIS DUMPSTER ARE NOT FOLLOWED, THE SERVICE WILL BE DISCONTINUED!  Your cooperation is needed and appreciated.

smoke testingThe City of Sully will be smoke testing sanitary sewer lines in late September or early October, once dry weather conditions return.  The purpose of the smoke testing is to determine the condition of the sanitary sewer system.  The testing will be conducted on a weekday by City representatives with the assistance of Garden & Associates.
The smoke should not enter the premises unless a leak is present in the plumbing or unless there is no water in basement floor drain traps or in plumbing fixture (sinks, showers, or bathtubs) drain traps.  It is important that the traps in drains be filled with water to prevent smoke from entering the premises.  
The smoke is non-toxic and will dissipate quickly.  If smoke is detected in the premises please notify the Fire Department by dialing 911, and please notify City Hall by dialing 641-594-3493.
Questions or concerns about smoke testing program should be directed to Barbra Maasdam at 641-594-3493.

The City of Sully has approved an agreement with Jasper County for asphalt paving on Highway F62/First Street inside Sully corporate limits with the project being awarded to Manatt’s Inc.  The first phase of construction has begun this week.  The second phase will be the asphalt overlay.  Residents are asked to avoid using First Street if possible during the construction period.  The construction project will involve use of a pilot car and may cause some inconvenience with access to First Street; however, the goal is to complete this project as smoothly and quickly as possible.  Should you have questions or concerns regarding this project, please contact a council member.
