City Water Well Repair Project Underway

Wednesday, June 19th, 2024

IMG_9824According to Monticello Mayor Jason Akers, last week City Water staff began supervising the repair of the City water well located near the UAM Campus.

The city now conducts periodic pump testing at city wells, with recent inspections showing the pump at the UAM well wasn’t functioning properly.

The issue causing the pump’s reduced performance was discovered at 280 feet below the surface, with the well shaft having suffered a fracture.

The City expects the well to be repaired and back operational within the course of the next two weeks. There has been no disruption of service due to the well being out of commission during the repairs.

“Pumps and Wells are not cheap. Testing pumps periodically allows us to find and address smaller issues before they become big issues that are extremely costly to repair. We anticipate having this well back up and running by the end of next week”.

Brian Smith Addresses City Council About Vision of Monticello with Alcohol Availability – Video

Wednesday, May 29th, 2024

When we started our small restaurant we were greeted with excitement and encouragement. But just like anything else, the new does wear off after a bit.

We were new at this so we knew we would make mistakes along the way. We started looking at our competitors in town and out of town.

We quickly realized those that served alcohol seemed to not be struggling as much as others.

On invite night back in November one of the poll questions was, “Would you be opposed to responsible sales of alcohol on premises?” Responsible being the key word.

The overwhelming majority said yes. When it became clear the new had worn off a bit, we decided to pursue our alcohol permit.

Let me make this point very clear. We are not a bar. We still want to be a family restaurant for people to bring their kids. If we get this permit, we will not encourage nor allow individuals to drink in excess.

We are simply a restaurant trying to survive, serve good food, and if a guest so desires an occasional beer, wine, or cocktail with a meal then we want to provide them with that option.

We just want to continue to serve the citizens of our great community for years to come.
