With the upcoming rain forecast of 3-5 inches please clean your curb lines in front of your house of leaves, grass clippings, or trash to prevent them from clogging storm drains.
And if you have a storm drain near your house please try to keep them clean to prevent road and or property flooding.
The public works crew will be out during the rain event to keep drains cleared as well. Some times there is more water then the drains can take during heavy rain events. So never drive through or walk through standing water. Man hole covers can become dislodged leaving a hole that you will not see. ... See MoreSee Less
It would be especially helpful if we could get a drain on the 2900 block of Banks Street. Every time we get even a moderate rain, the entire street floods. The water is so high it crests the sidewalk. The only drain is around the corner. Any chance someone could look into that please?
Please don't forget to check us on Franklin down the hill. 😊😔 it flooded bad last time we had horrible rain. Thanks for all the info and all you do!
