City Officials met with Franklin County Emergency Management and Homeland Security To Discuss Flooding Issues in Reynoldsburg.
As most of you are aware, Reynoldsburg has experienced large amounts of rainfall in three of the past four years, leading to flooding in various areas. On Wednesday, August 26 the Mayor and Service Director met with representatives from the Franklin County Emergency Management and Homeland Security to discuss a course of action moving forward. We are in the process of scheduling a public town hall meeting with representatives from various agencies to present a number of flood mitigation efforts that include education, recovery options, and reduction in incident options.
In the meantime the City will continue to improve local infrastructure, including storm-water and sewer, allocating over $1 million dollars in America Recovers Act money into our hardest-hit areas, as well as applying for any and all State of Ohio and Federal Level grants in addition to our regularly allocated improvement funds.
We thank you for your patience as we work to find the best short and long-term solutions to this ongoing issue.
