City workers given praise

To the editor:

I’m writing this to say how impressed I am with the utility workers with the City of Kelowna.

I had a water main break on a Friday afternoon and within 15 minutes of our call to the city, we had a crew at our house.

The workers put my wife at ease and promptly repaired the break which required an excavation of a hole eight feet wide by at least six feet deep.

The workers were very professional as they did their job and had the leak repaired in under two hours.

What started out as a stressful situation for my wife and myself was handled in a way that put us at ease.

I would like to say thank you to all those involved.

For me anyway, the stereotype of the surly, lazy city worker has certainly been squashed.

Steve Tymkow,

Kelowna
