:Y Mt. Pulaski Boil Order The order was issued Thursday (Sept. 10) night and was lifted Saturday (Sept. 12) moming at 9:25am. When the power went out the Thursday night, the city water pressure dropped below 20-pounds. Pursuant to EPA Regulations, the City of Mt. Pulaski had to issue a water boil order. ~" The water pressure dropped at the moment power went out and the water pressure retumed to normal when the genera- tor came on... all a matter of a few seconds. Due to the technical drop, the boil order was issued even though the water pressure immediately retumed to required levels. Water samples were driven to Peoria for testing Friday (Sept. 11) morning. Once tested, and approved, the boil order was lifted. -'0 Mt Pulaski Police Report O By Mike Lakin p.a CB An automobile was headed west on Wayne. A pickup truck was headed south on Marion. In the middle of the inter- section of the two streets, that absolute law of physics was proven - two objects cannot occupy the same space at the same time. The result of that little physics lesson.., the Pon- tiac was towed from the scene with extensive damage and the pickup truck was driven away under its own power. A citation was issued to the pickup truck driver for failure to yield. Chief Freer investigated. Of all places in this world, your driveway should be sacro- sanct - but it's not. The truck was parked without scratches. In the morning the right rear quarter panel was scratched. No suspects, but there are photos of the damage. Chief Freer took the report. Chief Freer watched a Mount Pulaski resident drive-by. He knew the license involved had been canceled in 2014, and not renewed. While the driver's license expired in 2014 there had also been two cancellations that same year. On being issued a citation, the resident said there was every intention to keep driving, because there was no other choice.. Chief Freer took a report of criminal damage to property in the 700 block of South Marion. The back door was open and a screen door had been damaged. Nothing was found missing or disturbed. In addition to the report, photos were taken of the damage. Mt. Pulaski American Legion Ryman-Fuiten Post 447 = 104 Scroggin Ave. - Mt.
