Salutes Des Plaines for a job well done

  • Article
text size: AAA

We have lived in Des Plaines for 56 years and have always appreciated all of the services it has to offer. We had an especially happy experience from two men from the water department, Dan Berk and Carl Henry.

On the Labor Day weekend there was a break in the water main near the corner of Jarvis and Eastview Drive. After the repair was completed, our water did not come back on so we phoned the police, who contacted the water department.


It was no more than two minutes when we received a phone call notifying us that two men were on their way. Both Dan and Carl stayed until all faucets were cleaned and all of our plumbing was working properly. They repaired everything including the instant hot water faucet.

We applaud these two men who represented our city in its best light and hope you recognize their good works which benefited both us and our city.
