Maybe than we can talk about it..
Eight months after the last flood event in the city and still no answers to what the city is doing. When Mr. Muskat got up at the last city council meeting and asked about what has happened about the flooding issue in the city? He said that he does not want to hear that they do not know. Well that is what they said we do not know anything. To make matters worse not only could he not get an answer as someone who had a flood in his basement. Corporation counsel jumped in to say do not talk about that I advise you not to discuss this issue or something along those line you hear it in one form or another at council meetings. It might have implications to on going litigation blah, blah, blah.
Same old story different day, Mr. Muskat said I am getting ready to repair my basement and would like to know if the city found a fix for the problem because I know it is nothing I did it for sure was caused by someone else. He went on to say that he is not part of any lawsuits he just wanted to know if they found the cause of the flooding and if they fixed it. Not too much to ask as a taxpayer, or so you would think. Eight (8) months later and no one has an answer to anything. For sure it is top on someone list of things to look into (yea right.) Why after eight months are there still no answers and even if there was the city can talk about it. Well if there are answers to what happened and why how is it that a taxpayer a flood victim can not at least find out if they fixed the problem. If memory serves me right, didn’t the council approve a study or something along those lines to see why we flood.. I think at one meeting some time ago they did bring it up and the reason it was taking so long was because the study can only happen when it rains. So when the spring and summer rains start maybe than there will be some answers, but will the findings be public will they ever be discussed at a council meeting? Most likely not if there is even a chance that the city is at fault for any of it for sure not. I still think it has something to do with the county I still remember so many people saying it was like someone pulled the stopper from a bathtub and all the water just drained so fast. Or someone pushed a button or pulled a switch or turned something on. That would not happen from the city end I do not think so anyway..
