Dish and Direct do not use City property for their systems. They are satellite based..."beam me down Scotty". Only physical presence is their antenna on your building or in your yard, both private property. Don't know about the phone company. But they are required to share their lines with other carriers. So, who pays that?

This whole trash fiasco started out with the TLE's (aka Kyle Moore) Director of Administrative Services thinking the cost of Workmen's Comp insurance premiums could be dramatically reduced if the City used the totes and trucks equipped with lift devices. The decision was made to offer that service to residents at a considerable cost increase over the sticker system. The totes cost $65 up…

Here here! We must remember that in 1856, the GOP was a fledgling upstart made up of former Whigs and a few Democrats. Then, once Lincoln won the White House in 1860, the GOP held the Presidency for most of the next 50 years, except for the two Cleveland terms. So there is hope for another party to rise and take the place of the Repulicrats/Democans. The sooner the better!

Hannibal Boil Order Lifted Early

Hannibal Boil Order Lifted Early

5 months, 4 weeks ago by Scott Hardy

As of 4:20 P.M. Thursday afternoon; still in effect for Ralls Co. WSD #1 customers

 

The Boil Order that was originally extended until 1:00 PM Friday, June 27, 2014 for all Hannibal Board of Public Works customers has been officially lifted early. The Boil Order has ended as of 4:20 P.M. Thursday June 26, 2014. 

 

All bacterial testing came back completely free of contaminants and the chlorine levels are consistently above the required threshold of 0.5 mg per liter. 

 

It is now safe for Hannibal BPW customers to consume and use water as you normally would without boiling beforehand.

 

The Boil Order remains in effect for Public Water Supply District #1 in Ralls County until 1 P.M. Friday, June 27, 2014

The District gets its' water from Hannibal.

The Board of Public Works advises those affected by the Boil Order to do the following:

  1. Boil water vigorously for 3 minutes prior to use for cooking or drinking.
  2. Disinfect food contact surfaces (dishes, cooking utensils, pans, etc.) by immersing them for at least 1 minute in clean tap water that contains one teaspoon of unscented household bleach per gallon of water.
  3. Dispose of ice cubes and remake with water that has been boiled.
  4. Continue boiling all water that is to be used for cooking or drinking until posted time or notified that the boil order has been lifted.
  5. Water used for bathing does not need to be boiled.
  6. Normal precautionary boil orders will be for 48 hours.
  7. Prior to lifting the boil order, the HPBW is required to test for chlorine residuals and bacteria in the affected area.
  8. If test results do not show proper chlorine amounts and no bacteria present, then the boil order will be extended.
  9. Chlorine residual testing only takes a few minutes, while bacteria testing takes 24 hours.

The storm that rolled through on Sunday also knocked out power to a large portion of town and knocked a number of branches as it brought over an inch of rain Sunday afternoon.
