So you don't have an overhead sewer...

No, we do not have overhead sewers.

Best heard with the proper Mr. Haney tone and inflection.

You don't just happen to have one on your truck by chance???

Just have a simple question, do all areas of FP flood? Not referring to the few homes here n there with overheads or expensive control systems but block by block. How about the businesses on Madison St?

I don't know but I would hazard a guess that with more and more of us taking to fixing the problem into our own hands (and lots of $$), it pushes the water to someone else's home who doesn't have some sort of protective system in place.

Know pie, sometimes feel a dry basement survivor's guilt for not having a sewage filled basement anymore, while many of my neighbors still do. At this time, there isn't another alternative. I don't blame the Mayor for our water issues, FP has flooded for decades. Had looked over the older flood articles in the Review, the Deep Tunnel completion is yrs away, if that will even come close to being a fix. Not an engineer but think the 1st step would be to get rid of the common sewer system, $$$$$. Believe we had larger diameter sewer pipes put in some time back, a band-aid, was that a waste of time, money?

Oh, and as far as the grant money for flood control? What's $1500.00? About one fourth or fifth of the expense, can understand why homeowners couldn't afford to take advantage of the offer.

What makes the $1500 harder to get access to is the fact that you have to apply right after Christmas time. When you are busy trying to keep up with everything else from after the holidays, who thinks of having a company over to write a quote for flood controls! Such a stupid stupid rule. Don't know why the village doesn't change that. Tim gives some lame, based on budget timing, reason.
