In response to ongoing complaints about recent flooding, Navasota City Council decided to take a chunk of its promised federal money to engage the firm Lockwood, Andrews and Newnam, to find a way to keep residents high and dry in the future.
LAN Engineer Derek St. John told council this last week, the FEMA grant the city was eligible for could take care of three quarters of the bill, adding the company would also be using data gathered by FEMA to try and find any clues to the city’s flooding woes.
And with the focus on Cedar Creek, Councilman Geoff Horn was concerned the study would disregard businesses in the area. But, Reassuring horn, St. John responded that LAN plans to focus on everything along Cedar Creek, commercial and residential alike, and with enough support, could even extend the study to Dove Crossing.
And with the council’s approval, the only question now, is whether FEMA comes across with the funding. And if and/or when they do, you’ll hear about it, right here on Navasota News.
