Miner officials address drainage issues

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

MINER -- Miner city officials are looking for a price tag for fixing the city's drainage problems.

Norman Lambert, city engineer, presented information on addressing drainage issues at Causey's Lawn Care to the Miner Board of Alderman during their regular monthly meeting Tuesday.

Lambert advised the Board that the problem involved a wider scope and that drainage improvements were also needed for the gas station and grocery store located in that area.

He said addressing the drainage problems there would cost about $22,000.

Board member Deloris Smith said the city should first address drainage problems citizens are having before helping businesses out.

Lambert agreed that "if we do it for one, we need to do it for all."

Alderman Terry Cole then suggested Lambert get figures together for taking care of all the drainage problems in the city.

"I'd like to know what it would cost," Cole said.

The Board agreed and directed Lambert to gather those figures for consideration during next month's regular meeting.
