The City of Hays Public Works Department is advising that due to recent snow events, coupled with the thawing activities that have transpired since those storms, and the pending rainfall in the forecast, many of the rock/gravel alleys in the City have become quite difficult to travel at this time. Future rains may further deteriorate the alley surface conditions. We are asking citizens to avoid the use of alleys if possible. The City of Hays is fully aware of the poor conditions of the alleys. Public Work crews will be doing maintenance as conditions allow, but the current wet conditions are delaying this work. Your cooperation and patience on this matter is truly appreciated. If you have questions or wish to report an issue, please contact the Public Works Department at (785) 628-7350.
