Crothersville seeks residents’ input as town applies for stormwater improvement grant

How frequent has stormwater damaged your home?

How many inches of rainfall does it take to cause flooding?

How long does it take for the stormwater to subside?

What damage has stormwater caused, how much did repairs cost and did you submit insurance claims?

Those questions are being asked of Crothersville residents to help the town receive a stormwater improvement grant to alleviate drainage and flooding issues.

Residents may submit letters, fill out a survey and submit photos of flooding or damage, which will be included in the application for Community Development Block Grant funding from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs.

Responses are needed by Saturday so Trena Carter with Administrative Resources association can include them with the grant application, which is due Oct. 14.

The survey can be filled out online at surveymonkey.com/r/Crothersville-storm-water or by stopping by Crothersville Town Hall during regular business hours and filling out a paper survey. Pictures may be placed in an envelope with name and address included and dropped off at town hall.
