The people who were flooded dont care who takes the blame, as long as somebody takes the blame. During the great flood several years ago, at a Nameoki Township meeting on the subject, the main theme from the Township Chairman was to blame the village. Then when the village held a meeting they were prepared for angry citizens so they brought in an engineer to help keep things calm. The Pontoon Beach Mayor and board members put up with quite a few accusatory questions and may have reacted a bit defensive a few times but the engineer also answering questions helped. What stood out was the talking point that this is a flood plain and that flood plains sometimes flood. It was so simple and yet so true. We can tinker around the edges a bit but any real fix will cost millions of dollars that we dont have. Thank you for coming, drive safely. No law suits that i know of.
