Week In Review: Aug 24th-28th

Kirsten Engels: Facility Services Manager

Wow, has the summer just flown by or what?! Hope you all were able to get in some fun activities in with friends and family. Unfortunately, there never seems to be enough time to fit everything in. This summer, I was fortunate enough to be able to go to the lake of the woods for the first time. We went out on our kayaks and did some fishing, hiked around the islands and just enjoyed the outdoors. For anyone who hasn’t gone here, I would recommend it, as the sights are gorgeous!

But enough about my personal life, let’s move on to what City Wide and the FSM's have been doing the last couple of months. There's never a dull moment, when it comes to maintenance at our facilities. Jarrad, one of our FSM's,  just encountered a flood at one of his accounts, due to all the rain we were having.  He was able to assist them with the flood restoration.  I, myself, am getting ready to do 48 turn cleans for an apartment complex on Monday.  We always have a different adventure, day in and day out.

This month, I am focusing on getting snow bids out to my customers and seeing what I can do to help them prepare for our MN winter. So, if you are looking for someone to care for your facility this winter, allow City Wide to be the first one you call!  Reach out to your FSM and any of us will be more than happy to help with the frustrating problem we call, snow.

Have a wonderful rest of summer!!
