Letter: Topeka city council listened to citizens

The seal of the city of Topeka. (City of Topeka)

I would like to say “thank you” to the city council on behalf of myself and the other residents of The Woods and Pheasant Run condominiums for deciding to limit the hours of the laundromat proposed for the corner of Westport and 22nd Terrace. I attended both meetings of the Planning Commission and found it hard to understand why an appointed group did not listen to the city staff members who did the research and stated that they felt the 24-hour operation could be an issue since the location was encroaching so closely on a residential area.

So again, thank you for listening to me and my neighbors.

RUTH MADELL, Topeka
