Elkhart Street Department deserves thanks

I want to extend my appreciation and thanks to the hard-working individuals of the Elkhart Street Department. This winter will not soon be forgotten by many, as it just kept coming at a clip we in Michiana are not used to experiencing.

As we approach the end of winter and look forward to the beginning of spring, Marty Morgan and his entire street crew are to be applauded for the exemplary service they have rendered to our community once again.

Mayor Dick Moore set the standard at the Elkhart Street Department many years ago as our street commissioner, and it is again flourishing. When you see on the news the number of communities that are struggling with basic services, it should give one pause and appreciation for the leadership in our city.
