Do any of you realize that the proposition is to put the land back to it's natural state before the subdivision was built? Actually below because of this injunction. If the neighborhood was never built, those floods never would have entered. do you know that the neighborhood down the street had water in their basements prior to Lakelands residents even starting to sandbag? Are you aware of the professional studies, including that of the Army Core of Engineers that have said a berm does not affect the downstream flooding? Are you aware that the lake is already a water shed for Lilly Cache? The lake cannot be a watershed for 2 river systems? Bill Lamb aside - you all need to know some more facts before giving your opinions on this project. the Lakelands residents want to protect their investment, just as all of you do regarding your homes that flooded. Before considering the idea of this, the Lakelands had the studies done to ensure they were not affecting other properties to save their own. For some reason - no one is believing the facts.
Take this focus off Bill Lamb and put it back on the topic of the Berm. And look at the FACTS before making your vote of "NO".
NO!

The natural state is a berm in the floodplain? Lily Cache is a river not a creek? If someone has basement flooding it is OK for them to have more? Here is a fact - it is Army Corps. If this is the type of information out there and it is OK for a Trustee to sue the tax payer it is no wonder Plainfield has become the punchline for all the jokes.

I attended a meeting where the Army Corp said, "We make no claim a berm will not increase flooding down stream, a full study must be conducted".
Have you considered that poor decisions could likely be the reason the Village is currently in litigation? get your facts together doesitmatter. Your words are not so!
The Berm is over!!!

Berm? What berm?

What is the big deal?

This issue is dead.

Right?

So stop already.

How about we worry about Obama and his destructive policies?

A berm is miniscule compared to this guy.

Wake up.

Has anyone asked the Village why they would supply sandbags build a berm? That puts the Village in position for a law suit.
