“We waited for it to stop and now we are waiting for a city employee, who knows the system to come in and then we can go from there,” he said.

Golling didn’t believe the smell would be much of an issue once the city employee tended to the matter.

However people were complaining of the smell from as far as Kasugai Garden Park.
