Monchilov Sewer Service has begun performing routine maintenance on the City’s Sanitary and Storm Sewer systems. This process involves using low water pressure to clean out any debris that has built up in the sewer pipes. The crew will then lower a camera into the sewers to inspect the pipes for any defects. As a precautionary measure, residents are advised to close toliet lid, and cover floor drains. This is the list of City Sewers lines that will be cleaned first:
In the event that they come across grease buildups, roots or other debris deposits, they will be required to change out the nozzle on their hose and increase the water pressure. This has the potential to cause pressure surges that may result in traps, drains and toilets expelling wastewater. If this is a concern or prior issue you may wish to stop or cover drains and leave toilet lids closed to minimize potential effects.
In our 21st century economy, innovation is necessary for economic leadership. Broadband infrastructure is today's central platform, and faster speeds spur innovation.

Hinkle-Witbeck Agency, Inc. is an independent insurance agency, meaning that it represents many different companies that are both Michigan based and national. The agency started in 1968 by Bruce Hinkle in Evart. Bruce was joined in 1970 by Richard (Dick) Witbeck. The second location in Reed City opened in 1980, after Bruce had retired and James (Jim) Hinkle joined the agency. Michelle Pennington purchased the agency in 2006, upon Jim Hinkle’s retirement.
There are 7 full-time employees between the two locations, and all but one of these has been at the agency for 15 or more years. The agency can write most lines of insurance, including auto, home, business, recreational vehicle, life and health (including Marketplace and Medicare supplements). With several companies to choose from, the rate shopping is done for you, while providing excellent customer service. Hinkle-Witbeck enjoys serving and supporting local community organizations and events.

Osceola County was named after Seminole Indian warrior Chief Osceola. The first white settler to the area was Nathan Hersey, a fur trapper, who arrived in 1840 and settled near the town and river that still bears his name. Reed City was plotted in 1870. Its first school was opened in 1872. By the late 1890s and early 1900s, the village had a population of about 2,690, and it officially became a city in 1933. Notable residents of Reed City include Thomas Schall, U.S. Senator from Minnesota, and George Bennard, American hymn composer and preacher best known for composing the famous hymn, "The Old Rugged Cross".
