  Magic City Begins to Attack The Flooding Problem

Justin Greer, the 4th ward councilman,  reports that the city has begun to attack the flooding issue at 14th St.  The city has hired an outside group to increase the capacity of the ditch at Wolf Creek by the softball and soccer fields.

Eclipse Construction will start this month to dig out the creek to increase its capacity. The project will take 90 days and 30 more days after that to finish the project. The walking track may be affected.

The Mayor stated on News 5 that not much can be done by one project to stop the flooding, “mother nature always wins”.  Joyce Coburn has had 4 furnaces replaced in 20 years due to flooding. The mayor said the city has spent over $1million dollars on flood prevention.

New storm sewers will be put in place on 5th St this year by Circle K. The east side street floods on just normal rain.
