    Can’t really blame him , but he should loose. Everyone knows that it floods where his property is. Been doing it for years. Don’t have a leg to stand on. But does he have enough money to buy the win in court ?

    @ Doug Clark. It’s not about money it’s about the state, county, & city doing the right things to fix the problem that they’ve cause. They’ve had a year to address the issue and nothing has been done. This will continue to happen year after year (almost did this year) because of HWY 52 and the amount of rainfall that is occurring. We love our town that’s why we own 4 businesses in the city limits. When purchasing this property the water was not a treat to the buildings. Also it’s not in a flood zone.
