[ARCHIVED] Some City Crews Moving to Summer Heat Schedule on June 5, 2023

Outside Thermometer

Summer heat can exceed 100 degrees making it difficult for anyone who works outdoors.  To reduce the potential for heat-related illness, the following city departments will begin the summer heat schedule on June 5, 2023.  


Cemetery, Electric Distribution, Golf, Parks, Street, Sanitation, Recycling, and Water Distribution.


The Summer Heat schedule (7 am – 4 pm) will help keep employees safe and out of the hottest part of the day.  The Summer Heat Schedule impacts all sanitation, water, and electric customers serviced by the City of Russell, with services beginning and ending an hour earlier than normal.  


Beginning June 5, 2023, sanitation customers should have their trash containers ready for pick-up by 7 a.m.  Electric and water service calls after 4 pm during the summer heat schedule are subject to an after-hours service charge.


Our crews do an excellent job and are always in the weather pushing through to get the job done.  We understand the inconvenience this may cause some folks, and thank you for your patience and understanding in keeping our crews safe.  


We will continue the heat schedule until Monday, September 4, 2023. 


Don't hesitate to contact the City Manager’s Office at 785.483.6311 if you have any questions.
