Mayor thanks helpers in crisis


Mayor thanks helpers in crisis

Assistance from citizens and a Co-Lin maintenance worker in helping labor-short town crews repair a water main drew special praise from Wesson Mayor Alton Shaw at the July Board of Aldermen meeting.


On July 4, the Wesson water department was caught short-handed when an eight-inch water main buried 12-feet underground ruptured disrupted service near Highway 51.


"People who didn't need to be there came out to help in the midst of a major storm and assisted until midnight," Shaw said.


The Mayor singled out citizen Mark Kirton, Co-Lin maintenance worker Dale Rushing and Chad Hester, husband of Town Clerk Angela Hester, for their service in the emergency in helping town worker Jonathan Hutt.
