EVANS CITY — A councilman on Monday night invited residents with concerns about flood risk to their properties to ask the borough for help.
Borough council is working to reduce flooding hazards throughout the community, but said many sites at risk lie on properties beyond its reach. To gain access to those sites, Councilman Mark R. Widdersheim is encouraging resident participation.
Several key sites lie on private property, including a former railroad site owned by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. In order to mitigate flooding at these sites, the borough would need permission from owners of the properties to do the work.
