Overbrook Overlook: Volunteers prepare canvas for new community mural

Progress is being made toward the new city mural on the maintenance building near the Overbrook Attendance Center. The Rotary Club power-washed the building, which was repaired by a mason to get it ready for the new mural. Bob Von Stein organized the priming of the wall. It is thought that, weather permitting, the artist will start painting soon and conclude her work sometime in June.

Overbrook Police Department

The rainy season is here now and with it brings tall grass, weeds, and creepy crawly things. With the heavy rains we have received recently, we understand it’s difficult to keep the grass and weeds mowed down. If you receive a notice for tall grass or weeds and need more time, please contact the police department at 785-665-7230 and we will be happy to work with you. Please use caution when cleaning up these problem areas by wearing gloves, long pants and boots. We don’t want anyone getting bit by a snake or spider. Thank you and have a safe summer. -Chief Terry Hollingsworth
