Manchester Reviewing Drainage Assistance for Residents Affected by Flooding

The City of Manchester is considering ways to help property owners who want to maintain their waterways.

City Manager Tim Vick says the topic has been brought up following concerns by several Manchester residents after damage was done during flash flooding along the city’s dry runs this past fall.

In their files, the City found a resolution that was already in place, but had rarely been used. On Monday night, they brought it to the City Council to find out if the Council wants to keep this resolution or change it.

The City Council has asked for more information such as the number of property owners along the city’s waterways and the average cost of flood damage such as brush removal and retaining wall repairs.

They’ll be discussing the topic again at an upcoming City Council meeting.
