Changes in weather are to blame for the smell coming from Ravenswood's sewage system, and city officials want to inform the public why it's happening.
Mayor Lucy Harbert says City Hall is being flooded with calls about the town's stench.
Harbert says the city's waste water operator has determined weather changes are causing matter at the bottom of the sewage lagoon to turn over to the top.
Residents say the hotter it gets, the worse the smell.
"You can drive down this road on the days that it's bad and you have to roll up the windows of your car, and then that don't help," Steve White, who works next to the lagoon, said.
Harbert says not much can be done to get rid of the smell, but that it will go away on its own soon.
A town meeting is set for Thursday at 7 p.m. at the fire department to help people better understand the problem.
