Silly Ditch

Cincinnati, OH

#1 Dec 7, 2011
Taxing every property owner in the Lilly Creek watershed to pay for fixing an open drainage ditch makes absolutely no sense at all. The City of Riverside, Montgomery County and state engineers should've installed drain pipe years ago when development was in full swing.

While it is certainly unfortunate that a few of the thousands of property owners have built structures near the dreaded ditch, the logic that all landowners in the watershed are suddenly financially responsible for the planet's rainfall that mostly soaks into in their yard and may get into that ditch is nonsense.

Ultimately, I suppose there will be additional taxes on our property to fix overflow of all the ditches, creeks and rivers on to Dayton, Cincinnati and eventually the sinking city of New Orleans.
