Ever leave your hose on accidentally or have a long-term water leak, like a running toilet in your basement or a cracked pipe at the hydrant in the yard? Wouldn't it have been great if someone told you before the water bill showed up? Our water billing department uses analytic software connected to your smart meters to do just that. 2-3 times on an average day we offer potential leak notifications to water customers, saving water resources and expediting repairs and clean up. ...

Yes, many, many years ago on the farm with my folks, one of my chores was to water the cattle. We had a well out in the country. I forget how many gallons of water it could pump out, but one afternoon getting home from school, I started the water for the cow tank and as usual, it seemed like a very long time to stand and watch the big tank fill up. So I busied myself with the dog, and some kittens, playing with them. Well I forgot all about the water tank and went on into the house for the night. The next morning my dad went out to do the chores and discovered the water still running full blast. The well was strong enough to put out fires like a firetruck. He followed the water all thru the 60 acre field, clear to a creek and on to the river. That would have been a huge bill if in the city.

This helped us already, it’s great and important!

saved us a bunch of money. thanks

Way better than Havana 😂

Does it tell us anything else?

UPDATE: NOT HAPPENING JUST YET. Weather and water are postponing the sealcoating, so don't get all happy about exiting the Lindy's lot on to Peoria Street this weekend. We'll let you know when...

Meanwhile, we'll still see you at Autumn Fest!

Thanks

From the Department of Photoshop & Traffic Control:
Saturday night (AFTER the music, food trucks, carriage rides of Autumn Fest on the Square, 4:30-8:30) we will answer the question of why we don't normally allow traffic to exit the Lindy's lot on to Peoria St.

Saturday night through Monday morning, the generously-provided Heartland Bank lot you normally traverse to exit will be sealcoated, they say for maintenance, but we say so you learn to appreciate its service and convenience.

Don't park there, behind Lindy's or next to Parish's overnight. Don't traverse the area while it's closed. Don't run with scissors or talk with your mouth full. Also, don't go watch expecting cute animals (wrong kind of seal).

We'll see you at Autumn Fest on the Square, Saturday, September 21, 2019.

You forgot “Don’t stare at the sun”.

Just to confirm, you’re telling us to ignore the wrong way/do not enter signs right here?

You would be surprised how many people will turn on to peoria st from lindys or use the turning lanes to pass someone turning on to peoria st or the people that flat out skip the round about and turn left from s main to peoria and I'm not talking about policies fire and emts, these are regular people who think the laws dont apply to them. And dont get me started about the speeders they forget it's on 25 thru there.

Where, oh where, can you recycle electronics and appliances? Starting September 23 and running no later than October 11 (but better early than late - these fill up fast) you can take advantage of a free recycling event at 14379 IL Rt 29 South, in Pekin. Please see the picture for details and if you are taking a TV, bring along a printed or digital copy of the flyer. Note they will accept typewriters. 'Cause, yeah, we all have those lying around. ...
