We Needed Help and PeopleService Provided It
With an excellent school system and a population of 1,200, North Bend, Nebraska, is a great place to raise kids. This farming community first partnered with PeopleService in 2000 and according to City Administrator Theresa Busse, “Before PeopleService we had brown water, an aging system, troubles keeping certified staff and lots of issues. We needed help and PeopleService provided it.
Lightning hit North Bend’s water plant and the control system was damaged. PeopleService was able to rebuild the system and keep it working. When a second lightning strike hit the water plant, that was the end of the old control system. PeopleService found us a compatible replacement system and helped us maintain it until we were ready to upgrade,” added Busse.
Today, North Bend is adding a third well that requires a new control system. “We are making positive improvements to the city’s future and the new system will provide us all with greater peace of mind. PeopleService has been a good partner to North Bend. Nebraska region manager Duane Grashorn always listens, lends a helping hand and makes certain that everything runs smoothly. Another benefit is that, from a budgeting perspective, PeopleService makes my job easy. I know what to expect. I know that PeopleService is here to help us weather any storm.”
