From the Between the Lines column by Ivan Foley: Approximately 15-20 homes in Platte City were without water for about two hours Monday afternoon when a water main broke at the intersection of Hwy. 92 and Second Street. Doug Knox, public works director for the city, reports the six inch main “cracked like somebody sawed it.” It broke at a weak spot in a joint, he said.
