Alder Rummel’s Updates
D6 Items of Interest Week of February 4, 2019
Highlights: Several city meetings were canceled due to last week's dangerous cold. Now temps are in the 30-40 degree range and the new concern is with melting snow and flooding. If you live close to a storm water inlet, please remove snow and ice to allow it to capture melting snow. One of the rescheduled meetings is the Water Utility Board, on Tuesday, they will be receiving an update about PFAS, an emerging contaminant that has been detected in at least one Madison well. The Water Utility has devoted a page on their website and have stepped up testing at Well 15 (Reindahl Park). This is a national public health issue and I join with others in supporting testing a broad array of this family of chemicals in our water and pushing for higher federal standards. Hold the date February 20- I am scheduling a neighborhood meeting with Gorman and Company to share info about the next phase of development at Union Corners. More info coming soon. Two upcoming mayoral forums in the next week– Wednesday Feb 6 and Monday Feb 11 – more details below. The primary is February 19. Early voting has also started.
