CITY TRYING TO CORRECT ISSUES, BUT HAVING
TO EXPLORE ALTERNATIVE METHODS TO DO SO
By ANTHONY WARREN THE
Sun Staff Writer
JACKSON CITY officials say there’s not much that can be done for a problem
that’s raising a bit of a stink on the Northside.
One leader who owns property along Ridgewood Road south of Lakeland Drive
said two uncovered sewage vents had been allowing non-desirable aromas into the
air, which are then sucked in by nearby air conditioning units.
District 25 Sen. Walter Michel said the vents created a less than pleasant situation
for one of his tenants at the 2660 Crane Ridge Office Plaza building.
“I walked in one day and it smelled like rotten eggs,” he said, as he walked to the Great in Bloody Marys.
vents a short distance from his real estate office. “The tenants had to go buy can-
dles and air fresheners.”
Michel asked that the tenant’s name not be released. “I’ve sent e-mails and made
calls to the city, but nothing’s been done.”
Ward One Councilman Jeff Weill also works a short distance north of the vents
on Leila Drive and said he couldn’t get anything done either.
“It’s been real frustraiting. I’ve sent e-mails to everyone I can think of. It’s been
several weeks since the issue has come up and I don’t know if the administration
Michel said he hired a maintenance man to lay wooden planks across the tops of
the vents to keep the smell down - something that has apparently worked. He said
bricks are holding the wood in place, but he knows it’s only a temporary solution.
Please drink responsibly.
CHRIS MIMS, Jackson’s director of communications, said Public Works offi-
cials went to address the problem the day the Sun called.
He said the two vents, also called vent interceptors, can’t be covered because “it
