Overbrook Overlook: Happy New Year, happy new water system

The city of Overbrook will be starting the year with a new water system for the entire city.

In an announcement by Overbrook Mayor Jon Brady to citizens, he said, “2022 brought many challenges for you and the city and we appreciate your understanding during the construction phase of the project. The warranty period will begin for the project after we complete the USDA Rural development project requirements. Many of you have contacted the city with concerns about the project. We have logged these concerns and the contractor has addressed some of them and will be addressing the remaining concerns. We expect grass seeding and lawn repair to begin in the spring. If you have concerns and have not contacted the city please let me know as soon as possible to help us ensure we get them addressed.”  For more information about the water project, see https://overbrookks.com/water-distribution-project.
