As a result, Griswold says during the next couple of weeks it will be necessary to estimate some utility bills. The mayor says estimating is an inexact science and that some mistakes may occur, but that every effort will be made to “correct these errors so none of you pay more than you should”.
34-year-old Dante L. Langston of Junction City, KS was cited for driving too fast for conditions, no valid registration and improper use of registration following an accident on I-64 just east of the 107-mile marker in Wayne County Friday evening.
