Hey, I think it's awesome that politicians and government workers in Marshall County actually seem to be interested in doing what they can to stop the water damage in their county. I live in Jefferson County Ohio and I had lots of water damage from water that ran down a Township Road, the road is the responsibility of two townships. Neither of the Townships seem to be interested in keeping my family safe! This water came without warning and flowed like a river for over an hour. Got a video.... check it out! *******youtu.be/yeP6ROJMnBE Warren Township and Smithfield Township Trustees are worthless hacks that fill a void. Nothing more, nothing less!

dyingov, I don't want much from them. I would like at a minimum for them to erect some sort of barrier to deflect the water from entering my property. On a larger scale, I would like to see the two townships work together to install proper drainage along the road. I don't know if you watched the video, but all of the water came down the road. It did not come out of the creekbed and then onto the road.It originated in the culverts, the rocks and other debris plugged the drain pipes and the water came down the road.The surface of the road was scoured off in places nearly a foot deep in spots. I just think they should have at least taken the time to come out and look. They at least could have had an idea as to what happened and how much damage their water and rocks caused to my property. The illegal dumping is another issue that plays into all of this. They don't realize that this situation could harm my family.

I watched the video. How much rain did you receive on that day? Appalachia does experience a lot of problems from "down-pour" type of rain events. Good luck on fighting Village Hall! Back-hoe and dump truck might help with the problem!!
