Mrs. Margie Beckett knows about the LOIS project first hand. She lives on Kelok Road where sewer pipe installation has meant living with construction for several weeks.  Mrs. Beckett

the laterals that lead to homes along Kelok Road.

recently shared her gratitude for LOIS team member Pat McDougal and the contractor hired to complete the project, Canby Engineering. Here's what she said:

"Canby Excavating has done an amazing job on our street. Because the entire crew has been so hard working and so thoughtful of the residents in our area, what could have been a nuisance has turned out to be a very pleasant experience. We have been very impressed with the speed of the work, the competency of all of the workers, and the thoroughness of the cleanup. They have been most cooperative with residents when we needed to access our homes and driveways and that has been really helpful! I am quite impressed that the city hired such a competent company to do this work. I have never seen a construction crew before that worked so efficiently. Based on the work done on our street, I call them the "Les Schwab" of construction companies!"

Keep up the good work LOIS!

Dear Mr. Komarek:

This letter is in regards to the street excavation and laying of sewer pipe taking place along Kelok Road in recent weeks. I am a resident of Kelok Road and wanted to give you some feedback regarding Canby Excavating and also Pat McDougal who has been our interface with the city.

I am happy to be able to give you an excellent report on both Canby Excavating and on Mr. McDougal's work. Pat came out twice to discuss with my husband and me how the sewer line would connect with our property and what we should expect as the project went forward. He was most helpful, and we really appreciated being kept informed and apprised of what would take place. Pat's work with us really set the stage for us to have a good feeling about the LOIS project before the tractor-hoes ever arrived on our road!

Thank you for a job well done with Pat McDougal's help, with the city's employees that are also working on this project, and for choosing an excellent company to do all of the actual work of excavating and laying the sewer lines!

Cordially,
Margie Beckett
