So the man buys a house with a basement problem, the real estate agent lies to him, and now he wants the taxpayers of CB to pay for his stupidity. Not on my dime mister, fix it yourself!

Maybey the town should do a $17000 study on the situation looks like no managers or employees know what to do.Val can only hold this situation off with Her lies so long and then someone will have to be hired to solve it.Maybe She needs a liason to the Town Manager,oh thats right She just fired one.

Learned my lesson from foxholes - never at the bottom of a hill. They flood. As do houses.

After reading the article I have to ask what are Tim Curtin and Tommy Edwards doing getting involved in this. I don't know about Tim but Tommy is involved because the owner of the house is a personal friend. He worked with him when they were both with the Alexandria Fire Dept. Council members have no business being involved in Town operations it is out of the scope of their responsibility. Neither one of these men understand the limits of their involvement in Town business

What I want to know is why the homowner had to have his relative come in with the camera to find the check valve??? The town has it's own camera (paid for with our dollars), so why didn't Murphy and his crew check it out themselves? What a waste of money, both for the town's camera and Murphy.
yea right

Seems the property owner would have responsibilities
to insure no damage inside his property line. You don't expect Dominion Power to install a generator for each property to keep food from spoiling during a outage.

But the food is the person's own property and responsibility. The sewage is the town's "property" and responsibility. Oops, I guess that's asking too much for Murphy and crew to be responsible for anything.

If you ever watched new construction the sewer line is run to the property line by the owner. But if these back flow preventer were installed in the 70's and haven't been a problem til now, over 30 years, how would anyone know.

Here comes another lawsuit. The town apparently DID know. Talk to the long-term employees, not Murphy.
