Associated Issues

Details:

On Saturday morning, I saw City of Peoria Community Development Department staff had a table and tent set up at the Riverfront Market. I saw something happen that I feel I needed to share with their boss and elected officials. A mother and a child were visiting the table and the child got sick and vomited everywhere. Your staff handled it is so nicely. You could see the mother and kid were very upset and City staff comforted them, got them ice and water, helped them clean up the vomit and just handled it so nicely. I know times in our society people give government workers a hard time but your staff that was working weren't upset, they were incredibly and compassionate about what happened. You could tell the mom was embarrassed and scared about what happened and your staff didn't make a big deal out of it, they were just fantastic. They made a bad situation, great for everyone involved. As a grandparent with multiple grand children, I am glad to know that people exist who are so helpful and loving. Just great job by all those involved.
