The City of Sully has contracted with Central Iowa Televising to perform preventative maintenance by cleaning the sanitary sewer lines beginning Monday, June 5, 2017 through Friday, June 23.  This will improve the sewer’s performance and help identify areas of concern.
The cleaning process causes a vacuum in the sewer.  This will not affect most homes, but some homes may be affected that have inadequate or partially blocked drain vents.  The vacuum may cause “P-traps” (the little S shaped bend in the pipe under sinks and drains) to be sucked dry.  Should you notice a sewer smell resulting from this, run a little water in your drains to refill the P-traps.  It is recommended that you shut the water valve off to your toilets, put the toilet seats down and cover floor drains with car mats.  This will minimize any possible splashing of the P-trap water in homes that are poorly vented.  Thank you for your help and cooperation.

The City of Sully is asking dog owners to please be considerate of your neighbors and control your barking dog.  Frequent, continual and habitual howling, yelping or barking is considered a disturbance and a nuisance per city code.  Citizens are also encouraged to fill out and file a formal complaint form if this is happening in your neighborhood.

We have just discovered a water main break on 5th Avenue and 4th Street. Crews will be working to repair it shortly which may require that water service be shut down temporarily. Repairs will be made as quickly as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience. (May 23, 2017)

I just want to give a quick letter and challenge everyone.  It has been brought to my attention that we as a city have a few things to discuss.  Please note – if someone has a complaint on anything in the city you must fill out a complaint form and sign it so the council can investigate.  The first thing I have received lately is the fact that the airport grass strip and the ball diamonds are being used for dog facilities or bathrooms.  Please! If you own a dog be responsible and clean up after them by picking up their waste.  Our children will be playing ball soon and I’m sure that parents don’t want them to track that mess into their homes.  Second – please keep children and young adults off the roofs of the playground equipment and the ball park concession stand.  This is not only a safety issue but also this would allow the property to last longer.  The last thing I have a huge problem with is the fact that some children climb on the Jasper County Freedom Rock.  The Freedom Rock is a tribute to all those people that have served and some even gave their lives for us and their country.  This shocks me because I don’t see children climb on tombstones at the cemetery so please don’t allow them to climb on the Freedom Rock.  I know this is sounding like I am a grumpy old man but I am willing to guess many people in our community would agree.  So please… if you see people doing any of these things just ask them to stop and get down or simply pick up after their dog.  I believe this community can make a difference.  I am proud to call Sully home and I would like to think that with some help all these things will be stopped.  I thank you in advance for all your help.

Mayor Brent Vander Molen
