"There will be a steep learn- ing curve for me to learn all that goes on in the sewer plant and water systems but the City has great employee~ who work hard and take directions really well. We can rely on them." says Ake, In the near future Ake will be attending educational classes in ordeli for him to secure the nec- essary licenses. City Manag,er Dewayne Bearden says, "The main rea- sons to hire Mr. Ake as Director of Public Works was to increase the productivity that is essential to the well being of our commu- nity." There are several projects al- ready underway that Ake is working to complete. Plus, the City recently acquired a 10% matching grant for improving the water distribution to the City. That project will begin in October with the replacing of several main water lines that are several decades old. Not only will the improvements help with distribution of water but will also improve the "down time" consumed when there is a ma- jor leak in the lines andwill also make improvements in the con- servation of the City's water. Ake moved to the Munday area in 2005. He is married to Rosie Ake. Knox County Trea- surer. PM Homecoming Ceremonies: 5:00 Brown Bag/Visitation by class - Locations TBA. 8:00 PM - Dance in Goree Gym.
