We received a message from our favorite alderman, Chad Tuneberg, representing Rockford's 3rd district. 

Chad reached out to us, hoping we could pass along this message:

Friendly reminder to Rockford residents that if they have a sewer grate that adjoins their proplerty, it is their responsibility to keep that free and clear of debris. I received a few calls from constituents over the past week or so about high water in streets and flowing into properties due to debris inhibiting water flow into the sewer system.

I'm sure there are plenty of people out there that didn't know that was their responsibility. I'm definitely one of those people.

We've got plenty of time right now, let's look after our neighborhoods.

And if you have any other complaints please feel free to reach out to Chad Tuneberg, he'd love to hear from you.
