Tanyard streets flooding

June 13, 2017

Councilwoman Sherri Myers called to say the Tanyard neighborhood that streets around Mayor Ashton Hayward’s Government Street Stormwater Pond are flooded.

“We paid $4 million for a stormwater pond that’s not working,” she said. “This is a mess.”

Myers said that it looks like the pond has been breached. One car has flooded out.

Citizens have called to report city streets recently repaved are having trouble removing the rain water.

    On a serious note. When this car flooded out, I was there, the 3 women where scared to death. There is not any signage that the road is subject to flooding.
    After both ends were “closed” trucks and suvs continud to come down the road. They were having “fun” sending large wakes onto surrounding properties including my house. The wakes covered two of my four steps into my house.
    Please folks be aware of the damage you might contribute to a deadly situation. What if it was your house?

      Looks like you need a “Slow Speed – No Wake” sign.

    The Mayor will be happy, Dr. G’s house sets right in front of the flood car/street, she will not be able to get out of her home and have coffee with Da’Mayor.
