Jay Kinkel, with Kinkel Laundry, will receive a 5 percent reduction to the sewer part of the laundromat's water bill.

He asked the Park Rapids City Council for a water evaporation allowance Tuesday night as he presented facts and data supporting the request. The water evaporation allowance is to account for the water that stays in clothes after washing and does not go down the sewer.
