Officals struggle to fund sewer solution
“If you live on my street, you're not going to get rid of your water. "They already have a storm sewer drain on South Westminster Street, but the village is going in to repair it when we don't have a storm drain on Ohio Street”

I can appreciate the fact that Waynesfield City Council is struggling to do something about the drainage problem on Ohio Street. However I do not appreciate some of their comments in rsponse to Ms Cook's plead for help. The words caution and that even though they fix the problem it will still not prevent Ms Cook from having more water problems are the city council efforts in trying to keep this drainage problem in Ms Cook's lap.
The city council makes remarks, such as "that house" as always had water problems. I would suggest when negative comments are made, proof of evdience of that comment should be present. The statement that Ms Cook has a plug tile on her property which is causing her problem needs to be proven. How is it that they know about a plug tile? Where is the proof?
Ms Cook bought her home in December of 2002 and not in 1996. At that time the water was control by one sump pump. I would ask the city council what it is that they think Ms Cook should do to prevent the water from flooding her property? Let's see..........landscaping...... ....reality is the landscaping would be washed away without proper city drainage. How would the suggest Ms Cook landscape her property. Let's see..........bring in the dirt to raise the level of land..........reality is that if water has no place to go, no matter the piles of dirt, the land will be washed away due to the water has no place to go. Perhaps Ms Cook should just dig a new tile outlet in her yard and let the water go out to the street........hello neighbor.
Why is it that the city council continues to try make this Ms Cook's problem? Let's see..........perhaps they do not want to admit that the flood problem is not Ms Cook's problem but the city's.
