Utility to address flooding problem



Rachel Amos said she gladly will pay a $4 monthly fee if it means the city will fix flooding problems in her neighborhood.

She attended Monday night’s Seymour City Council meeting to support the city’s plans to create a stormwater utility and charge property owners a fee to fund it.

“We have a lot of flooding on our streets when it rains,” said Amos, who lives on Juliann Drive on the city’s far southwest side. “Sometimes it’s so bad people can’t get out of their houses.”
