With temperatures in the 90’s on Monday, Aug. 12, it was hard to stay cool, especially when Golden City doesn’t have a town pool.

Last year, during the heat, Central States Automation had created a way for the fire hydrant to become a sprinkler for the neighborhood. “It was used several times last year, but this year, with all the rain, there just hasn’t been a decent time to do it,” said one city employee, adding, “Today seemed like a good day!”
