LIBERTY - After several discussions on water problems at the Ressie Grider and Breece Hayes properties on Randolph Street, the City Council agreed Wednesday night to do something that might correct the water flow.
Grider and her attorney Greg Dunn said there were no problems with flooding until the city put in a larger tile near her property.
However, Mayor Steve Sweeney thinks the problem may not be with the city but that 50-gallon barrels linked together were used as a drain pipe underneath a barn on the Grider property. He told Grider that before the garage was built, her late husband used the barrels as a drain pipe.
He said the barrels may have collapsed causing the water to have no place to go. The mayor said that water has always run under Middleburg Street where the larger tile was installed and through a ravine toward the river.
