Roof Goes Up, Tree Comes Down


Cutters Working on a Limb


Signs of warmer weather are apparent in town. Several Lamar City work crews were taking down two trees in Willow Creek Park on Wednesday while our winds weren’t as strong as they have been recently.  One crewman on the ground said the two trees, one on either side of the creek, are about 85% dead and once they’re out by the roots, replacements from the city’s tree farm will replace them.  The trees are coming down, cut in several foot lengths and will probably be hauled away to the tree dump once the annual project is complete.

Raising a Generator for Roof Work

The warmer weather was an opportune time for roof replacement at the Prowers County Courthouse. A new roof was installed in May, 2016 and a roof was also replaced at the County Annex this past fall.

A general view of houses in local neighborhoods shows that some residential roof replacement due to last August’s hail storm is far from complete.  Hail always gets the last word.
