The interim superintendent for the Bushnell-Prairie City School District says the position is fun.
Bill Mattingly says there are a number of reasons including quickly developing a working relationship with the board.
He says, “The board seems to have a very clear understanding of role and they've been super-supportive and very accommodating. They have basically let me function within the role of which I'm supposed to function and I'm very appreciative of that.”
Bushnell is moving forward on a project to replace sewer lines in the Wells-Hale part of the city.
Mayor Steve Russell says construction should begin in the spring.
He says, “(We'll) try to make them larger. Try to handle flow. You know, people were getting backed-up in their basements, stuff like that when we did have rain. So we're hoping that this will help cure some of that.”
Russell says the city will have to coordinate the construction with the golf course since some of the lines run under it.
