NICHOLS, Iowa–The Nichols City Council approved plans to move forward with sewer work on Broadway Street. The anticipated work will correct a longtime issue in that portion of the city.

For the past two years, Broadway Street has experienced a number of issues with its sewer backing up into manholes. Previous inspections revealed the sewer line most likely had a breech somewhere in this segment, leading to the backups. Though these inspections identified the problem, none of the companies contacted about repairing it could because of the depth of the sewer line.

Recently, the City of Nichols contacted Triple B Construction, a grading and excavating company based in Wilton. Triple B expects that within about a month’s time, and certainly before the end of the year, they can complete the repairs the City of Nichols requested.

In other news, the Nichols City Council would like to remind people that the community brush pile only accepts residential yard waste. To keep the pile from becoming to large for the Nichols Volunteer Fire Department to safely burn, the Council requests that all commercial yard waste go to the Muscatine Transfer Station’s compost site, which can issue dumping permits to commerical customers that need them. If any Nichols residents need help cleaning up after last Monday’s storm, the Council encourages them to contact the Fire Department for assistance.

Additionally, the Council approved the Muscatine County Hazard Mitigation Plan. This step will allow the city to qualify for Federal Emergency Management Agency assistance after severe storms of floods.
