Last Tuesday evening, June 23 the City Council met. First on the agenda was Citizen Participation. Bill Jenkin, came as spokesperson for a group of downtown business owners who were affected by recent storm water flooding. Jenkin spoke to council with two concerns: No capacity for water run-off from storms and attracting businesses to downtown with these type of issues. Jenkin said, "What's happening is there's no capacity for storm water," later he continued, "It's amazing it just floods from the alley way." Jenkin spoke of diverting the water and the possibility of French drains. Councilman Randy Taylor suggested, "A probable solution can we take the water to Seventh Street?"
