Linden is still cleaning up from the April 24 storm, but slowly getting squared away. We have cleaned up and burned hundreds of loads of limbs and leaves. We have pretty much had our Street crew working limb burn at the dump for the last three weeks. We are going to stop burning this week and get back focused on the streets and the park. The walking trail in Crow Heath park is covered with trees and we are going to have to remove them and fix the trail. The winds were so strong we had some chain link fences blowdown. We have had a lot of water/sewer lines damaged by roots of trees being blown over breaking pipes. We are still repairing them and as the ground dries it contracts and we get our usual Spring dry out leaks. If you see water bubbling up please call City Hall at 903 756-7502.
Wow, what a week! For those who did not see last week’s paper, you are probably surprised that there is only one paper now. Unfortunately, we had to merge the newspaper, in response, in part, to COVID-19. For those who are keeping up, you probably saw we decided to NOT go with Cass County Now (the name of our website) for the name of our newspaper. Instead, since we are merging two historical newspapers into one, we felt like it was important to keep the namesakes of each paper hence the name will be the Cass County Citizens Journal-Sun.
