Thank you. I know lots of areas have flooded for years, just wondering what the problem is and if it can be fixed, if our town grows our sewer system and drainage problems need to be fixed or else we become stagnated like standing water does, and that causes more problems like mosquito's that can carry the nile virus. Is anyone in charge of finding out how to route the water to prevent the problems we are having? I'm not trying to play the blame game, I just want our town to grow, prosper, and I would like for our leaders to leave a legacy of what a great place this is for our younger generation to have grown up in. I think that is one think we are blessed with, great kids with good parents leading the way. The city should do the same.I'm not sure what the State's problem was with the City doing ditch work. There are other areas in Monterey that flood but they have flooded for decades. The more growth you have, the more paving is required and that creates more run-off. I'm not well versed in this run-off business but it seems to me that if you took a topography map of the city and identified the current water problems due to grade, you could see where to route the water either by improvement on the existing ditches or creating holding ponds.
When it rains, it pours in Monterey. Floods, too. So much so that many in the small mountain-top town are suffering the sloshy consequences, which includes everything from crumbling foundations to cracking parking lots.

Where are the good kids and good parents you speak of?

The kids have to go to other city and communities for fun things to do, nothing for them to do here. The county can't even furnish them a high school. What would Cookeville kids and parents do if they were faced with the situation our families have to deal with. The fur would really fly.
