  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.
                                                                                                                                          Bacon-flavored vodka...
    “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
  has responded.”
    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

  using a chemical to address the problem, but said the chemical used to reduce the
  smell can also cause structural damage to the sewer system.
